    You never know when the weather is abberative. Instead of the mild and wet Atlantic the Siberian Bear hit our country, and caused a snow-ball effect of weird phenomena. In our yard I encounterd this little fellow, he didn't seem to be bothered by the weather at all....

    They are a hardy breed in those parts! Well spotted, nice composition.

    Yeah.... always wanted a hat (?) like that, but I'm not allowed to. So, I thought I'd carve one....:D

    Thinking of that: it has a me-like corona-haircut....

    I'll be getting a haircut when the barber and I have had the vaccine...it's getting very long!

    Wonderfully quirky, Rense. Cleary he is gathering insulation for the cold nights ahead.

    The hairdressers open here in Germany on the 1st March and, by lucky coincidence, we had already booked appointments at our friend's salon. Mind, with the temperatures as they are, I might regret it!
