It started snowing Sunday afternoon.
And this is what it looked like all day yesterday as I sat at my computer and watched the snow show.
At times the bird feeder experienced traffic jams.  My little tree was full of birds waiting to swoop down and grab a bite.

The snow she was a blowin'.

Today the sun is out and the snow is about 6-8 inches.  And about 18 degrees.

I am keeping warm.  And very thankful for electric and propane gas.

"Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together
Like two birds of a feather would be
Let's take that road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you."
Clop, clop, clop

Oh Gail, your wild birds are beautiful. Look at the colors, red cardinal and blue bird....simply sweet. I too, feed the the wild birds, now if I can only keep the pesty neighbor cat away.

Your winter wonderland is so pretty.

You get somewhat different visitors to your garden, lol, a lot more colourful. This morning, we had on the bird table - a squirrel, eventually chased away by a sea gull. When the gull left, we had a few wood pigeons, starlings, a variety of tits and a couple of robins. Not the most exciting colours, but I do love to watch all the wild life in the garden.

I grew up in Michigan and lived in Chicago for a while and I really miss the cardinals. So bright and pretty against the snow. Alas, California has no cardinals. They also don't have 10 feet of snow, so I guess there's a bright side to everything. Lovely pictures.

Those are great pictures. We didn't get quite that much snow here in JC...the mall still opened and I had to go to work...bummer!

Beautiful photos! The birds are gorgeous! I hope you're staying snuggled up and warm. Wishing you an early "Merry Christmas" in case I don't get back by before it arrives!

such serenity...lovely photos Gail...i'm very surprised not to see a resident squirrel trying to steal the food. They risk their lives to steal food from our two wolfhounds bowls outside.

Hi Gail,

Greetings from Florida....Chilly here but I just read your blog.The pictures of the snow and those beautiful birds having a meal. We have "Snow Birds" here on the SW Coast of FL, now but they sure don't look like that. Have a great Holiday Season. Stay warm.

Snow?! Yuck! I can do without. I know it is pretty but I hate driving in it!

Robin said...

Oh my, I do hope you are staying inside and toasty warm!!



I don't think I would get a lick of work done with all of the beautiful birds stopping by.

I need to refill my feeder. A greedy little (fat) squirrel scarfed down all of it.

Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures

Stay warm,

Such beautiful birds! It doesn't snow where I live in California, but I think I may have to go out and get a bird feeder after seeing your lovely photos!

Oh my Gosh, Gail! I thought the pictures were fake at the beginning, I had to look three times to convince myself that they were not postcards! Thank you so much for your lovely visit and comment!!!
