Laura and I spent the morning removing piles of bird seed hulls,
oak leaves, and last year's detritus.
There was something very hard, like a rock, under one pile of hulls.
It was a big block of ice.
The succulent pot looks good, and all the mosses are filling in.
But next year we will take the leaf blower to the leaves in the fall!
It was Winter Festival at the ski jump.
The pink bunny made it so.
This is the slosh pit.
All those celebrants are waiting their turn
To ski through that large pool of water.
