Icy Days

The hills are still white but the sunny days have meant that the snow has nearly disappeared from all the fields but the
pools are still iced over

as are the paths.

The bird bath needs regular applications of hot water to melt the ice. I directed hot water on the middle of the ice yesterday and, suddenly, whoosh, a jet a water spurted in the air and sprayed directly all over my face. I retreated dripping into the house. Refreshing on an icy morning , guess there was an air pocket underneath. It almost turned into a bird Jacuzzi.
