The first is that Friday evening, I walked eight blocks to a dinner party! A winter walk any distance further than my car to the garage alone is noteworthy.
Here's a few more things I saw during my evening walk.
On my way I saw a pair of ducks waddling in the street.
I also found this duck (decoy) though I'm not sure what its purpose was in someone's front lawn.
I found something poking up through last year's debris, perhaps irises?
At this point something else occurred that I found happens much more often during nice weather. I stopped to talk to people! Why don't have a photo of them, we had a lovely chat and they pointed out that their tulips next to their home already had 2 inches of greenery above the ground.
A birdbath waiting patiently for someone migrating from the South to return.
A rain garden waiting patiently for the snow to melt and rain to arrive.
One of many lost winter items that soon will no longer be missed.
