This heart formed when the Sunday evening snow didn't hit the deck directly under the table.  Each day that there has been a little melting reinforced the shape.  For the last few mornings, I've gone to the back door and peered out to see if the heart was still there. 

Today temps rise to 39 degrees, so I expect my heart will disappear today.  It's a price I will happily pay to have the ice gone from our lives.

When I call the dogs in from the back yard, as they walk the broken pieces of ice-snow clink like broken pieces of glass. 

Ready for some more moderate temperatures.


  1. A little love to warm you on those bitter cold days..
    Now how sweet is mother nature to leave that for you?

  2. I "love" it when hearts appear like that!
    Strangely my heart potato chip has lasted for a couple of years without breaking or getting moldy. Perhaps it has fossilized!

    Hmmm, is that a good thing? A fossilized heart?

  3. This is so beautiful..and your retrievers are just gorgeous.
    Greetings from a warm, sunny South Africa
