I came across these two creatures today in my email inbox. They were featured in this article from the wonderful people at Space.com.

And, I put my Shaman-y hat on and went visiting HERE, at Dropping Pennies. Many thanks to KT, for the invite.

The sun is shining so bright it’s almost impossible to look out my window without squinting as the gorgeous beams dance over and bounce off of the hard packed frozen snow. A brisk northerly wind has blown every cloud from the sky and the gusts howl through my, slightly open window, because who can resist such a harbinger of Spring.

      Occasionally we get teased with a notice from the weather bureau that we might get the aurora this far south but it never quite reaches us, being in a valley and surrounded by mountains. 😀 … the review blew me away. 🙂

    Those are great pictures! And good descriptions too, they really do look like a dragon and a phoenix.

    If I saw those dragons I would flee in terror. Mind you, not very likely in the southern parts, is it?
    Our weather remains in the Uncomfortably Hot (30 degrees) cycle. Our autumns or early winters are the best times.
