A snowy pond

Meadow pond surrounded by snow in the SC Botanical Garden
A winter morning walk brought me by the Meadow Pond, which was lovely in the early light.  Campus is closed again today because of heavy snow and icy roads, but with AWD, the short trip to the Garden was uneventful.  The two killdeer flying around the meadow were a treat to see -- a sign of winter.  I saw flocks of killdeer last year at this time, but the meadows weren't covered with snow!
