~smile~. I'm sure he'll love it...and tell us the species too.

To me they are just red ants.

Actually, looking again, they are not the red ants I remember from my youth.

I noticed he was online and remembered I had a pretty good photo of ants in my March folder so enter it I did.

I bet that wasn't from March this year!

My POM entries theme this month is ice, since we have had two ice storms, a week apart, and the ice is beautiful if destructive to my plants. I admit to deeply resenting an ice storm on March 18 when it should be springtime!

Daffodils, very sad, in the ice

Dogwood blossom, about to open, but will it still after being enclosed in ice?

Icy sparkles on my sweetbox and on the left over stalks of asters above my doomed lettuce seedlings...

You guessed that one correct! It was taken in March of 2012

Two years ago, I was in the woods peeking at salamanders.

Year before that...Watching someone climb upon the buckling ice.

This year, we're still looking at nearly two feet of snow and will be dropping down to about 6 degrees again by Saturday....

Thanks, Hava. It looks like an alien mouth about to open up to me. I like your salamanders.

Any signs of spring up there in frigid land? I may bitch and moan about ice storms, but I know I have it a lot better here than you folks up north, bless your hearts! (that is a southernism for I am glad I am not you...)

Ice can make things beautiful as your photos show.

Cute pine warbler...I hope I get some here some day.

I'm no expert...especially with things growing in the South, but being that the actual flowers in the dogwood are in the very center surrounded by the petal-like bracts, they are far from opening...I think and hope that they should be okay.
