Ice-Storm Day + Two

Photos celebrating the beauty of nature in my yard--enrobed in ice. Song Sparrow nest in the flowering plum in my front yard. It has been fun to watch the sparrows return to this nest the last two years. I also have a couple bird houses in this same area of my yard that get used annually.Ice-covered Holly.

Nice shots. Ice is so pretty, but infinitely more hassle than snow.

Arak on ice? Sounds like a Middle Eastern skating show. Yes is the answer. Delicious. I am not one who waters drinks down, so yes, ice. But I prefer Turkish Raki. Only because I remember my grandfather drinking it, and the elegant guy on the bottle of Kulup Rakisi reminds me of him.
