Winter scenes

Our short thaw was followed by more cold weather. Finally, I think (and hope) we are starting to have spring.

The Hudson River froze.

after two months of snow covered ground, the deer are starving. They have been coming up on the front porch to eat my shrubs. I have used deer repellent spray for years with good results, but not this year. Five days ago, when I went out to shovel, the rhododendron was covered with leaves. Now it is just sticks.
