En garde!

Last week it snowed. A lot.

I'm not complaining--we have had hardly any snow this winter, so having a bit of a spring blizzard (wherein more snow fell than the rest of the winter, I'm sure) was only a minor inconvenience, and a small relief to the gardener in me. (You know, the one worried about how dry the ground will be a week after everything thaws out.)

All that snowy weather has been followed by several days of warm sunniness, leading to that fun bi-product of thin, poorly-insulated ceilings--icicles!

Jude couldn't resist showing off this particularly monstrous one:

Do you like his "winter shag?" :-)
