Do You See What I’m Up Against?

Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. We welcomed March in with an 80Β°F day. It was fantastic. I wanted to get a picture of my neighborhood yesterday so I could show you why my allergies are so bad lately. But I got busy and failed to capture a picture. Today, however, we were bombarded with temperatures below freezing, and waves of ice pellets that literally rained down like beads dropping from a broken necklace, and sounding like glass against the windowpanes. During a lull, I went outside and grabbed a picture of the neighborhood. This is shot number one:

And number two:

So, now you can see and understand my predicament. I’m completely surrounded and outnumbered. Every single one of those trees is the exact same one as mine. I need help. And, not to leave my tree out, this is what happened in one day.Β

Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
