Winter in Kentucky this year has been mostly about rainy days.
Recalling last summer's fairly severe drought, I can only hope that there is a carry-over effect of the ample moisture being bestowed upon us in the past several months.
Today's photos may have an element of deja vu--the big boy 'kittens' relish the aftermath of every rainfall and were quite the brightest elements of a grey morning landscape.
Nellie stirs the puddle.
What with fresh puddles and the endless up-earthings of moles to explore, the 'boys' spent a happy half hour in the sodden yard, before coming indoors to dry off on clean bedspreads. [Sigh]
Edward carrying a prize fished out of the puddle.
I intercepted him and found he was carrying a leafy cocoon--looks like remnants of a 'bagworm' wintered over. I didn't allow him to bring it indoors.
This was the outlook early on Saturday morning.
We've had only the lightest dustings of snow all winter.
This disappeared in a few hours.
Our weeks of gloomy weather have made for less walking along the edges of the fields--too muddy for a pleasant stroll, thus many more hours than usual to stay inside and sew or read.
