While the ice must be getting thicker, a couple of sunny days have been wonderful. The early sun beat off some very thick fog on the lake, but then won the day. Still not so warm, but better then what is to come.
It has been toime to get those last leaves in their places for mulching, and cover the septic area if you need to do that. The green pines are providing nice color against the nude birches. The odd oak gives that brownish purple look to those spots.
