Bright, cold, mostly clear

Yesterday and today, patches of ice that are easily avoided. The W&OD is greened on either side by Japanese honeysuckle (scientific name Lonicera japonica) during winter. Honeysuckle is evergreen, even though the leaves look like those of deciduous broad-leaved plants. Red-tailed hawk soaring over Vienna, and a little lower, a Turkey vulture tipped to examine us. We're not dead yet!
