The birds arrived early on Christmas morning looking for their breakfast. Mr. Red Cardinal keeps a lookout to make sure he doesn't miss the lady with the food.
A red-headed woodpecker waits patiently in the tree for me to fill the suet cages. Meanwhile he is busy checking for any insects that might be hiding in the bark.
Mrs. Cardinal greedily plucks the choicest morsels from her perch on the porch rail while the heated water dish steams in the background.
Come one, come all, be ye cardinal, dove, sparrow, or blue jay. Everyone is welcome here.
OK, where did everyone go? They were here just a minute ago.
All the foods gone. Who ate it all? Maybe the nice lady will bring out some more. How can I resist. Off to the store to buy more bird food.
In the front of the house the Christmas lights glow through a veil of pure white bringing a fairy like magic to the entrance.
The snow in our parking lots is piled nearly as high as an elephants eye. While the rest of the world shovels snow and hunt for food my dogs lay content in front of the warm fire.
Mac, says Mom I know you think I'm cute but you want me to hold still for another photo shoot.
While Annie just continues her nap dreaming perhaps of a squirrel to chase.
We had two mores inches of snow yesterday so we are still living in a winter wonderland. Our streets are clear and easy to drive on so the snow is a thing of beauty. I think I will make a cup of hot tea and curl up by the window to do a little bird watching and catch a few chapters of a good book.
Hope you have a good week.
