Until mid-afternoon we enjoyed plenty of sunshine, including a bit of melting and some solar gain. The temp on the front porch reached almost 50°F, courtesy of the latter…although we didn’t open it up (brr).
I found gorgeous shadows from the trees, and most enjoyed the snow that is still piled up on the lilac seed-structures. I guess that the snow endured on these fine branches and twigs means the snow was cold and the wind absent.
As I write this, the sun has abandoned us, although the overcast skies have not become snowy.
