There haven't been many snow mornings here this winter so you have to appreciate the beauty while you can. That's what I told myself when I decided to take a walk around the Japan House ponds this morning. Gloves made picture taking a little clumsy but the walk left me feeling energized and peaceful.
If you haven't yet taken advantage of the new walkway around the ponds that the Arboretum put in this summer you must try it. It affords absolutely beautiful new views of Japan House and the gardens. This morning the geese appeared to be having an altercation of some sort and as I watched them I saw some kind of furry animal swimming through the pond. Anyone have an idea of what it might have been?
