That's an apple tree, right there behind the seating area. See the chairs and fire pit? OK, so maybe not the fire pit, but you can see the tops of the chairs, right? The snow here is several inches past my knees. A little too much to manuever in. There was a photo in the local paper of someone pruning apple trees at Sholan Farms this past week, but I noticed he was wearing snowshoes. I think I'll just wait a week or two. Or maybe a month.
Meanwhile, strange patterns have begun to appear in the snowbanks around our house.
Or perhaps it was only a teenager expressing her opinion about the amount of shoveling she's had to do? Guess I'll have to set up a camera, and try to catch the person in the act. Personally, I'm hoping it's the crop circle dudes, because we have another storm or two coming this week, and I want the teenager to keep shoveling!
