    Hi 🙂 The snow looks very pretty! I am sure the birds and other animals appreciate all of your bird feeders and gifts of food. 🙂 I love the crocuses peeking out of the snow. 🙂 I am not really a winter person either. I take the opportunity to get rested up, caught up on indoor tasks and read a few good books. I try to bundle up and spend as much time outside as I can. I think fresh air and sunshine are food groups. 🙂 I miss having the kitchen window open in the winter and the birdsong. Good luck staying safe and warm in the snowy weather!

      Thanks for visiting and your lovely comments. I would rather be hot than cold, I can never seem to warm up. I miss being out in the garden and listening to the birds. I don’t mind the snow as much as the bitter cold gray days. Stay warm..

    Good Morning,

    Your photographs are beautiful. I love the first one, the cardinal (at least, I think it’s a cardinal) at the bird feeder and the crocus. I’m from the central coast area in California. While it is warm and sunny most days, I will never see a beautiful red bird perched on a snow covered feeder in my backyard or a crocus peeking up through the snow.

    This is my first winter as a retired person. In the past, I have always worked, but this year I will finally have time for my writing, cooking a proper meal, planning my garden layout, getting out in nature (there’s a kestrel I want to see through my binoculars), and curling up with a good book and some popcorn on the rainy, drizzly days.

    I want to give you a special thanks for opening my eyes to the many birds and other wildlife, I have in my own backyard.

    Have a beautiful Christmas

      Thank you, and yes, that is a Cardinal in the first pic. I have a ways to go before I can retire but your list sounds a lot like mine. It’s really hard to balance all of that while working full-time. I try, but sometimes things get away from me. You are lucky to not see snow and deal with the cold weather. It’s much rather see palm trees and pelicans. Have a wonderful Christmas as well. Please check out my latest post “The Twelve Days of Christmas From my Backyard” , I think you’ll enjoy it. ❄️
