Snowdrops

I should be doing taxes while I am incapacitated. The books are done. The forms are printed. The receipts are organized. I can start ciphering anytime. I don't have the money to pay though. There is no need to hurry. There are bound to be more winter days available for taxes.

I went for a walk in the melt instead. I saw snowdrops.





















I pick up sticks as I wander and look for tracks in the snow to see who has been trespassing in the wild cultivated gardens. There are wild things out there. There are deer of course and I'm not sure if it is a fox, coyote or Button pretending he has snow shoes with extended claws. I fear it is the coyote and do my best to pretend otherwise. The good news is we have an ample supply of first choice varmints for coyotes to dine on.

I saw a lot of snowdrops poking up through the snow and leaf litter. I saw some frozen daffodil foliage, but that is par for the course. The vast majority of the daffodils are still safely below ground.

It's not time for spring. I have a good bit of chop and drop left to go before I am ready for spring.

Sounds like chopping and dropping would be better to do than taxes. Actually anything would be better to do than taxes. Bah humbug.
