It’s so hard for me to do Nature Notes at this time of year. It’s been icy cold outside, and there is no fun snow to make up for the frigid weather.
I took these photos of the brook near my home last week, when it was a bit warmer. At least this one has some green from the ivy.
Last year on December 31, 2009, there was a lot of snow by the brook. Will there be snow this year in late December? Other than flurries, we’ve had none.
Ah, the hawthorn berries are in season!
