Blue Sky Day
It was a beautiful blue sky day today. Much of the snow has melted, but the temperature is dropping. Walking around in the garden was quite the chilly experience. It's hard to think of this part of December as autumn. The sun's rays make a long shadow behind the bench. It will get longer still for three more weeks until the winter solstice when the sun begins to move higher in the sky again. In the meantime it just gets dark a little earlier each day. There seems to be no time for outside work after lunch. The birds are busy at the suet feeder. I think they know it will be cold tonight.
