I noticed "Terry's rabbit" - or at least one of the rabbits Terry enjoys, sitting on the hard packed snow, nibbling something...
Throughout the year, but especially at certain times in the winter, some the tips of the branches fall off... I've often wondered why.
Do these young (not-so-prickly?) tips provide food for wild life - even after they have been covered in snow?
As the snow melts, do this newly exposed branches taste as fresh as they did before they were frozen?
As I survey our backyard, It occurs to me that - if the rabbit moved just a tiny bit, I probably wouldn't have noticed him... thanks to his (or her) camouflage coloring.
