Actually, before I went out, I took this picture of the garage through a window in the sunroom.
Outside the back door, under a tree next to the driveway, is a twig bench that my neighbour made for us several years ago. I think it needs to be taken in for repairs, but the cat likes to use it as a scratching post, or as a perch in the summer to survey the territory and keep an eye out for raccoons. Or skunks.
Right up to my knees!
It's snow time, babies!
