No, this pond is not in my garden I just thought it looked so pretty with the pump sending out a plume of spray to keep an area open. This wicked cold weather, 2 F this morning, is not good for much of anything living.
I am always amazed how birds can withstand such temperatures. Of course they have other things to worry about other than Arctic conditions. The neighborhood cats are drawn to the feeders as well.
I know this innocent looking creature isn't any more comfortable than the birds. He should be at home by the hearth. I can just hear him thinking. Where are those birds?
Are they over there?
No they went thataway.
Then just a few minutes later I look out and what do I see???
This beautiful white ball of fur hunkering down behind the log planter waiting for the birds to forget it is there so it can have a half frozen snack.
Who Meee, eat poor little defenseless birdies???? Surely you jest.
