A view from my front porch -- as well as my window behind my computer. I'm located on a ridge of Bear Mountain upon the tableland of the Appalachian Plateau. Yesterday, it was sunny and the birds in the yard were actively feeding. Today they are inactive. What is active are my dogs running through the snow with white tufts of snow on their noses. My silver maple stands as a steward of the small valley below. Its buds in place but dormant until the spring. All is well.
