Thanks to everyone who weighed in on my "knotty" dilemma.  I ended up with two pretty-perfect French Knots for the eyes and then left well enough alone. 

First off, it's 50F outdoors so still no snow! 

Indoors my Paper-whites have begun to bloom - they are so wonderfully fragrant. 

Outdoors these two funny faces amused me!

Then when I next looked there was Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail...
So where is Peter anyway?

Several people have complimented me on the Chickadee photo that currently using as my header.  Thank you all so much! 
I'd like to be able to tell you that I'm a stellar photographer with professional grade equipment - NOT!
Instead that photo is the result of Beginner's Luck.  I "borrowed" my sister's new Canon SX210IS one frosty morning and wow - a truly wonderful shot!
Since then, I've been unable to replicate it in composition, quality, detail, or any of the other myriad ways in which photos are judged.
The good news: with digital, it costs nothing to keep on trying!

Those bunnies are adorable - as long as they are not nibbling my garden! ;) My paperwhites are blooming also - I love the smell, but my family does not!

So cute- the finish and the bunnies! I'm so jealous, we don't get many wild bunnies around here!
