A nearby town made the national news for snowfall this week. Silly, to most of us, as this is New England! We've had snow in April before! It was pretty and deep and a wet snow, making a beautiful backdrop for a flock of first of the season Redwing Blackbirds. We also woke up to tracks all through our yard and the neighbors.
They found the male holly at the corner of the house. I can't blame them, it was a very poor year for acorns. Usually our yard is covered with acorns and we rake them and send them over the hill where the deer feast all winter. I think in the 25 years we've lived here this is the first without acorns.....there were a few, but a very few!!!
