Meanwhile, the temperatures are anything but January like this morning. It was 8 degrees C this morning at 5:00 and the temperature has only dropped a bit during the day. It should start moving down soon as it's supposed to be -2 this evening.
I found two wild flowers in bloom before 10 a.m. this morning. Both are varieties of chickweeds. This first one is the Common Chickweed. I have found it blooming under snow before but . . .
The second flower is Mouse-ear Chickweed. It's the first time I have ever seen it blooming during a January day.
This Woolly Bear was crawling across the lawn this afternoon near the dog's pen. Lucky it didn't drown.
