Happy (Brrrr) Mardi Gras!

It "ain't" Spring yet!

Location: Southwest Louisiana
Date: Mardi Gras, March 4, 2014

Enjoy the Ice Show (I am trying to :((((

Cardinal pappa in his thickest winter coat. What is he planning in this weather?

See the sleet ( no snow down here!) on his tail.

Blackberry cuttings in the sleet and ice.

Pine branches laden with ice.

Dutch bird feeder with icicles. Only one little bird in the back.

More feeders almost empty, but ice rink on the roof.

Dinner for some birds and ice for their beverages.

Even the garden totems are dripping ice.

Boy, that E6000 glue is good. These garden decorations (that's a plastic spider, by the way) have endured at least two years of extreme heat and now this ice storm and icicles on top.

Olive trees don't look so good iced over.

Up close and personal with the icy olive branches.

And what we fought all winter!!! Our grand agaves are frozen!

Wow you are not used to that are you? I am so I can only imagine that poor old Cardinal and the olive branches. I in turn am getting used to white and cold even us Canadians have a limit:) Hug B

Great pic of your cardinal! Does the plastic spider ward off anything?
