Cocooning with coffee, home-made granola, a fire and stacks of library books. So no need to rush out and clean the driveway until it warms up a bit more.
Here's the view out the living room window. Note the red leaves still clinging to the Paperbark Maple and yellow ones on the Golden Curls Willow. The deck furniture stays outside. The bench has lived outdoors for 25 years. These images were shot from right to left.
Though you can't see them, the stream and waterfalls are still running. The pond is not frozen, just covered in slushy snow.
Two dwarf Japanese maples are in pots on the deck. Once they lose their leaves I am going to overwinter them in the garage.
