Happy New Year on the Tallgrass!
2010 is on it's last legs here. As I write this entry we're in a unusual weather event...instead of a blizzard, it's pouring rain and sleet; soon to be just snow. Weird stuff for the last day of the year to be sure!
I was out on the pasture this week with the snow shoes; it is very retrospective to view things now that they are under winter's blanket. Many vole holes appear here and there, as do tunnel ridges traveling to and from buried seed heads. I always shake my head in wonder at how nature copes in the extremes...the snow's crust is now hardened by the weather change and, for those left "on top", things are going to get difficult!!!
The video at the top of this blog is a scene taken out one of the studio windows...kind of a "snow globe" gift to you. If you are an email subscriber to this blog, the video won't show up...you can either go directly to the blog (http://tallgrassjournal.blogspot.com/) or visit this link on You Tube -
I want to take a moment to wish all of you out there a prosperous and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
See you on the Tallgrass in 2011!!!
