Ersatz Icicle Dangles from Branch

I stared at this for a long time wondering how it could be

Spring is here.
Officially.
Unseasonably cold
and you can see why
I wondered how this sight
could possibly be real.
Not!
But it made me wonder.

Yesterday I took Murphy for  a walk after school.  And it was about 37 degrees.  Chilly but not freezing.  I got down the street and saw this hanging from a tree branch.

    Are those pink buds on the trees real? Now that’s the important question! Where is spring? Don’t leave us hanging! What’s the story on the (fake?) icicle?

    I think it’s an anomaly in the time-space continuum.Sounds good to me.

    Ruth,
    A mutual friend, Pat Nixon, has posted links to your photography in the past. Now I’ve just gone ahead and bookmarked your site so I can visit without being told to. I thoroughly enjoy your work.
