It looks like we can finally turn the page on winter —
a fond memory of the snow covered rose trellis.
Snowed in - but at least I have my vase of Daffodils and a fresh baked Butterscotch Pie (my Grandmothers recipe).
I’m feelin’ fine.
Finally the power is back on and internet up and running.
At the peak of the snow storm, our Chicken Coop was a bit loaded with the white stuff.
Tip toe in the snow.
My chickens are not thrilled about having to walk on something COLD!
12” here - power still off — at Starbucks!
Ice covered orange Calendula in Virginia this morning.
My last little bloom on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville.
Originally I thought this darling little bird to be a common Sparrow. Upon magnification, the yellow under the wing and on the rump came into view!
It’s a Yellow-rumped Warbler. If you have never looked at birds with binoculars, you will be totally amazed when you do!
They called for .1” in Charlottesville, Virginia last night —- hum —-
MOTHER NATURE IS IN CONTROL —-
going on 6” —-
Snowing on Forsythia Hill - coming down fast for about 1 hour.
Our chickens are still hanging out below the coop.
The ice has finally turned into something FUN —— SNOW!
This little Carolina Wren is getting his last suet digs in. I can’t believe I got a shot of him with his tail down - they are so cute popping about on the ground with their little tails twirling in the air.
I’ve had 2 days of great fun shooting outside but I captured this photo from inside looking out of our basement window, as I sip some Chai beside the woodstove.
