After Party

Now that the largest hooplah is over we are going to settle in for a long winter's nap. That is right after we take Annie for her morning walk. With it being only 18°F and feeling colder we hot footed it to the park with Annie for a quick walk around the park. I was stopped in my tracks by what Mother Nature was sharing this morning. We had a good dusting of snow and many of the leaves that were on the walk had been blown off this morning making little leaf snow angels. I couldn't resist taking their pictures.
 There were several different kind of oak leaves.
 I am not sure what kind of oaks. Do you see anything you can identify?



 The one below here is a tulip poplar leaf...I think.
 This one a maple of some sort.
This one is a Ginko. Easy to id with an actual leaf right beside it. 
Here is another.
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy some of this crispy winter weather and see some of natures surprises. Now it is time for that nap. Night night.

  4. I love the leaf photos. I wonder how the wind picked up the leaves without disturbing the snow around them?

    1. I think the snow around them was frozen so tight and with no snow below when the warmer air hit it lifted the leaves. ???

  6. I admire you for braving the cold and taking Annie to the park. I haven't ventured much past the back door since it turned frigid here. Even the dogs quickly do their business and come right back in. A long winter's nap sounds good to me.

  8. A nap sounds good. We are hunkering down inside today, not interested in experiencing the subzero weather.

    1. I hate when your emails don't make it to me. They must be lost in cyber alleys. Good to hear you received your packet. Big hugs...
