There is beauty everywhere around us.
In the last few days, we have seen some unusual icicles. It had been snowing much and on the roofs there were thick, heavy blankets of snow. With thawing, the snow started slowly to slide downwards (and fell down). In this photo, you can see some of the last chunks still on a roof:
The melt water running under the blanket of snow had formed funny-looking icicles:
This is one of them, seen through our kitchen window:

Here another one, again seen from the kitchen window:
Below, you can see air bubbles and some seeds trapped in the ice. The colours haven't been edited. The sun was shining and the dark background colour of this and the first photo comes from the trees behind (on the other side of the lake):
And then the critter update. One of "our" squirrels has learned to climb a steel pole to reach the bird feeder you can see in this post. I went to tell him/her that even though inventive, this approach is not appreciated by us. He/she decided to back away for a while:
A very cute willow tit came to keep an eye on the situation... and on the feeder:
Thank you for your visit!
