In Praise of Snow

Okay, I get it. We're supposed to hate winter, shun snow and go south where it's always warm. And, yes, I admit, I am looking forward to spring.

That being said, I kind of like winter. Shhh. Don't tell anyone. It's the time of year when we can go out to the back of the property and not get bitten by bugs.

The light in the morning on the snowy branches is picturesque.

By noon, the little birds have knocked it all down to the ground.

The blue jays make all kinds of weird, musical sounds from up above.

Everything is covered with a lovely blanket of snow. This birdhouse will need a spring cleaning to welcome its new guests.

The morning sunrise. Lovely.

I'm with you. You forgot to mention that wonderful feeling or returning home to a wood stove burning away and the hot cocoa. That makes it all perfect.

Great photos, Ronna. I especially like the one of the nestbox. I am not looking forward to the rain tomorrow... what a mess that'll make!

I am with you too.
I knew the first time I went to Florida that I was a northern girl. I love the change of season, and everything each season bring.
Great post!
