Winter in North Carolina is a mixed bag. One day it is freezing cold and you can’t get warm enough, then the next day it’s 70 degrees and you’re wearing shorts. We have a saying here, “It’s North Carolina. If you don’t like the weather wait 15 minutes and it’ll change!” Last week it was spring with temps in the 70’s and it was wonderful. This week it has rained nonstop and we are supposed to get snow and a mix. The mix is the dangerous part here because that means ice. Hopefully, we’ll just get some snow. Everyone is so excited!
Can you tell by my flower garden that it’s confusing? I have plants that were trying to bloom because of the warm weather. If you look at my driveway you can tell how much it’s rained cuz there’s a lake forming! This morning I looked out my classroom window and the birds were going crazy playing in the rain. This little bluebird was taking a bath in a puddle. If you look closely at the picture below, a bluebird and three other birds are splashing in another puddle.
This little girl was posing for her picture. She was in one of my pecan trees.
This one was drinking in the mud? Or trying to find his reflection?
This one is my favorite! It was perched up in my cherry tree. I love the lighting behind it. You can really tell it’s winter!
There was a cute squirrel running around, but he took off into the woods after he got all the pecans he wanted. I really wanted his picture! Maybe tomorrow. I guess even the animals are excited about the chance of snow
This is a picture of a big old branch that fell not long ago. Good thing Becca had my van at work. This is right where I park! We’ve already had some snow mixed in with the rain. I hope this isn’t a sign of what’s to come!
