The east side of the landscaping berm is covered with bulbs that have emerged from their winter below ground. And, on Tuesday, the plants, the berm, and the rest of the yard were covered with ice.
Maybe I’ve mentioned it previously, but I really just don’t like cold weather. I get worse about it every year, too; right now I don’t even like going to the north side of town because I fear it’ll be colder up there. But that layer of ice on the plants was lovely and, thinking of my loyal reader(s) as always, I braved the bitter temperatures* to get this shot.
*Yes. Bitter, bitter temperatures. (31 degrees, if you have to know.)
Remember yesterday, when I posted my first-ever photo of Moriarty, New Mexico?
Here’s what I saw in the (gigantic) parking lot of a fireworks stand. See how those flags and banners are held by the wind? And see the puddles in the parking lot? That, plus the fact that I had an absolutely inappropriate coat will explain why I didn’t stay very long in Moriarty. But at least I got off the highway, finally, and looked around.

In the summer, these seats are full of people who’ve come here to see the musical “Texas”, a musical that’s (sort of) based on the history of this part of Texas. (Apparently ALL the early settlers could sing and dance! Amazing!)
Anyway, at the end of December, the place is empty.
Guess which way I like it?
