When it snows ...

What a thrill it was to have one more snowfall ♥
We woke to a winter wonderland yesterday  and the flakes continued to fall all day long!
Our garden was filled with birds for the entire day ...
feeders had visitors on each and every perch ...
sparrows
red cardinals
black capped chickadees
nuthatch
turtle doves
blackbirds
jays
robins
lots of squirrels
... and our sweet garden rabbits
we loved watching them move about our garden
fallen seeds were happily eaten while waiting for space at the feeders
Mr. Cardinal stood out of course wearing his gorgeous red ♥ coat
and Mrs. Cardinal is always close by
I love the little heart shape found at the top of the twig ~ do you see it?
"Softly, like thoughts,
that come and go,
the snowflakes fall,
each one
a gem"
~William Hamilton Gibson~

we have a space carved out just for honey flower under our pergola ~ it is here that she will nestle when it rains and/or the weather turns cold .
We can see her here from our kitchen window.
"A snowflake
is one of God's most fragile creations,
but look what they can do
when they stick together!"
~Unknown~
On our woodland walk, we were thrilled to come across a field full of Robins!
We did a very quick count as they flew ... 24 ... but there were many more I'm sure

You have such an abundance nature, even in the winter, which doesn't happen here.

thank you jane ~ it is something we never take for granted ... we always say we live in the city but our hearts are in the country & having the birds and bunnies and squirrels in our garden is such a blessing ♥

how beautiful! I love little birdies - how special to see them out in the snow. One downfall to moving to the west is I never see a cardinal anymore....

hi Alyssa ~ thank you for stopping by ♥ It's funny how different areas have their own birds ... and how different the "same" birds are ~ especially Robins and Jays.
