Well it is so cold here that all the groundhogs went on vacation..yesterday we saw their replacements.
The entire animal world is suffering..yesterday during the day we saw a fat little skunk running north as fast as his little legs would carry him. Yes, I said North, he was going the wrong way. He was also running toward Highway 10. The little bugger probably never made it across. Skunks usually come out during a February thaw to breed..the lone males come out of their dens seeking a little love, but they are usually nocturnal. Did you know they can spray more than 15 feet? I did not get a photo.
The highway crews may have disturbed the skunks hibernation. They are clearing snow from the ditches..to make room for more snow. I wonder if we are half way through this miserable winter?
How cold was it here this morning?
Cold enough for both of us to go back to bed for a couple more hours.
Cold enough for me to look at some flower photos!
Barb’s Lupine last June..I enjoy going over there..she lives at the farm where I grew up..and she has weed free flower gardens:)
