It’s been a long winter–it’s almost March and we still have 6 inches of snow on the ground. In addition to the birds and the ducks we’ve been feeding three raccoons that stop by every evening around 9:30 or so. It’s not a good thing to do, I know, but I suspect they aren’t finding much to eat with the weather we’ve had. So they will get an apple and some nuts until the snow melts. I think this little coon paw print in the snow is beautiful.
