Friday Visitor

The snow finally stopped around 8:30 this morning and lo and behold look what popped out.  Its really a most magnificent site - the blue sky, bright sun, the white snow ...

The trees look like they are lit up with the sun shining on the ice.

This little guy stood still long enough to get his picture taken, Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal stopped by but everytime I get my camera they fly away.  Such wonders of nature, its truly beautiful.

Remind me I said that when the snow that is predicted for next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday is falling and I'm moaning about it.  But I really do think we've had enough to last for this winter. 
Afternoon crocheting is on the menu.  I'm trying to get ready for the next CAL rounds ... I did an oops and had to rip out several rounds but have almost recovered.

Hope your day is sunny.    


  1. Aren't birds beautiful?? I sit here with my laptop and am facing the window. I have my camera on the table and as soon as I see the birds come by, I try to snap a picture really quick. The little snow birds are very quick little things. It's hard to get their pictures. And another favorite of mine are the blue jays. They are sooo awesome! Thanks for sharing your pictures.

  2. This is so beautiful Glor.. I love winter pictures like this.. they calm me down.. I know sounds hilarious but its true.,,,,,Enjoy and stay safe and warm..Hugs from South Texas..Birgit

  3. The pictures look very much like our landscape. So very pretty. I had a Cardinal land in my bridal wreath bush that was covered with snow. Ack! no camera handy.

  4. Beautiful pictures, I love the way the shadows are cast from the trees.God's flashlight is shining on us today too. A most welcome change and give the heart a moment to dance and appreciate it after all the gray/dark. Each of its own is good, and one helps us appreciate the other. Getting ready for work...Hope you are feeling better today. We are on the mend.

  5. That second photo is absolutely stunning! You could make a greeting card from that!

  6. Lovely pretty. I love all the snowmen pictures you put on your blog, too. Thank you for the Doily CAL, it's a lot of fun. Wishing you a lovely day. Blessings always. :)
