All that glitters in Siouxland

16 Dec

After the first significant snowfall in Siouxland, the sun finally emerged and the snow began disappearing. Since it was a heavy clinging kind of snow, the melt formed ice on many bushes and trees like the deciduous holly bush. Which in turn created some nice visual effects as well. And so glittering in a nearby alley was a frozen entree for some enterprising bird, and a nice visual treat for those checking out the after snowfall landscape.
