snowy day

Our big snow storm left us a winter wonderland.

Today the sky is a gorgeous blue and everything is beautifully frosted.

The bird house is wearing a lovely swirl of snow.

We have a heater in our fountain to keep it running all winter.
The little birds actually stand on the bubbling water.

We keep our feeders well-filled and get many pretty visitors.

This is my favorite feeder so far. It hangs at our kitchen window
and the little birds can climb inside.

All those birds make the cats want to go out.
Buster is hesitant and stays inside....

but Jack is fearless & out he goes. He can only go
as far as the shovel has gone. No birds for you, Jack!

Have a wonderful day, snowy or not!


  1. s glad you are enjoying a snowy winter wonderland..Me?

  2. Hi Carol... have a beautiful winter wonderland going on at your pretty! I love the snow and how it looks! Beautiful photos, my friend...and I especially enjoyed your sweet birds! You know, I live in Colorado and you would think that we would have snow but the northeastern corner is very arid and we really do not get much! Of course, when we do get that fluffy white stuff...I really enjoy it! Thank you for sharing your photos with us! I also wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your tour of Longwood Gardens! It's gorgeous and all of those beautiful flowers...ahhhh! I loved the soft pink pretty!!!

    Thank you so much for coming by and taking a peek at my Beloved Valentine table...loved your note!!!

    Warmest winter wishes, my friend!

  3. Yes, isn't the snow beautiful? I have never seen it so sparkly. I, too, am having fun photographing the birds and shoveling paths for my four cats! No cabin fever for me, probably because we have had lots of sunshine.

  4. That black branch with the white snow glove is just simply exquisite, don't'cha think?

  5. What beautiful wintry photos and how brave your black kitty is to venture out into the snow! Love the shadows and the birdies too ;-)
    Hugs and blessings,
