We got about 7 inches of snow. It is so light and fluffy. We will be digging out today. But the winds tonight will just blow this all right back. There was a 2 hour delay in school starts, this morning.
This shot is for Sheri at Red Rose Alley. It is very pretty when the snow is on the trees. I'll be bundled up soon , out there cleaning and shoveling. LOL
Here's my sweet robins on the mantle. I got these at a craft place at Amish Acres, in northern Indiana. Robins are my favorite bird of this area, because they are a sign of spring. I love their way of hopping on the ground.
I love their sweet song too. I am so glad we went to town yesterday and bought 80 pounds of bird feed. Ted filled all the feeders. The birds will be busy at the feeders today, as they will not be able to find anything on the grounds. If you do not have feeders, break up some bread or crackers for the birds. Some times, I cut up apples and oranges and put under the trees where they feed.
Take care out there today , everyone. XO
You got a lot more snow than we did! We were lucky last night- only 2 inches or so. It is so cold. I love robins, too. 74 days until spring!ReplyDelete
Tete, I am happy we didn't get ice. that is too scary. The sun is shining so prettily today. That help me get through you know. :) Oh it is fun to count off the days. Because it does go quickly. Blessings , stay safe and warm. xoxo,SusieDelete
The deer have been cleaning out one of my bird feeders so I have to refill it every day. I only put enough in for the day, I don't really want to feed the deer!ReplyDelete
Your snow looks so cold, but pretty. We haven't had much yet this winter.
Take care out there shoveling!
Cheryl, we never seem to be bothered by deer...but I know they can tear up things too. Some times the squirrels will chew feeders up if they can jump to them. We have a corn holder form them. Keep warm. xoxo,SusieDelete
Jealous.......no snow here, darn!ReplyDelete
Ann, I would share this snow...but you will probably get yourself some soon. I think we are in for some dangerously cold temperatures the next couple days. The sun is shining right now...oh God is good. xoxo,SusieDelete
I always love how the snow lays on the evergreens, don't you Susie? I love the view you shared from your house. I love that you love robins too. I always hoe that the robins that come to my garden are the same ones as the year before. They are my little friends.ReplyDelete
Hi June, Some times I wish the birds here were from the year before. I do think hummingbirds may be. They know where the feeders are. They are in Mexico by now. LOL. I do love the snow on the evergreens. Just not on the roads. LOL. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
We got some bird feed Sunday and the feeders are full! I'm going to get dressed and go for a walk in the sunshine!ReplyDelete
Cindy, I do love the sunshine. Especially when it's cold and the snow is on the ground. It lifts my spirits. I was out a couple times today shoveling and sweeping. My fingers were very cold...so I can back in when I had enough. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh Susie, thank you so much for the picture. It is just what I needed today. I went out this morning trying to see a bit of nature, but didn't see any birds or anything. What would it be like to open your front door and see this winter wonderland? I didn't know the robin was your favorite bird. I see them around here a lot.ReplyDelete
A happy day to you, Susie.
Sheri, I love cardinals, blue jays, finches and hummingbirds. But the robin is my sure sign that spring is here. I love it. There's one bird I hate , it's the starling...they are nasty, can't sing, and mess with other birds' nests. Hope you get to see some nature things this week. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love those robins, they look beautiful perched up there, an inspiration that spring will indeed come again,ReplyDelete
Laurie, That is why I wanted them out, to think happy thoughts. I miss singing birds. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I don't know where the robins go around here when the cold weather comes. I know it isn't far, because they are back again when we have a warm-up. Your snow looks really pretty, but I know it is something extra for you to add to that list of chores. xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, You are right. I told my husband that I feel like a pioneer at times. Believe me I would not have been a good one. LOL. Stay warm and safe. xoxo,SusieDelete
I do like black and white winter shots.ReplyDelete
We just got a coating of snow but it is getting colder. We'll be flirting with 0 in a day or two. I'll be thinking of a warm sunrise by the ocean.....
Boston Boy, We had a heck of a day. Shoveled , used the snow blower, carried in wood for the fireplace. Suppose to be -26 wind chill tomorrow. I too would love a nice summery sunset, or sun rise. xoxo,SusieDelete
Youhave snow, and I have bitter cold!!ReplyDelete
Hmm...I think I would like to have the snow!
Deb, We have the bitter cold also. Tomorrow is to be -26 wind chill. Some schools may close.I hope they all do. Kids do not need to stand out in this. Stay warm and safe. xoxo, SusieDelete
It snowed all day here, but we got less than an inch. Nice and fluffy too. This week is supposed to be very cold. I can't wait until Spring comes.ReplyDelete
Kathy, We got the bitter cold with this snow. tomorrow is to -26 with the wind chill. They may close schools..i hope so. Take care and be safe. xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow! That is A LOT of SnowReplyDelete
Japolina, I see why people move to Florida now. LOL. It is so cold , tomorrow is to be -26 with the wind chill. I hope the schools close. I hate to think of kids standing waiting for the bus. Take care and enjoy your good temperatures. xoxo,SusieDelete
We only had an inch of snow and sidewalks were fine when I went out earlier tonight. Hoping it stay fine and it's not slippery. I really am in dread of falling.ReplyDelete
Carol, The only broken bone I ever had was, running in snow. I had forgotten there was ice under the new snow. I was hurrying to get into my sister's car....we were on our way to work. It was so snowy and quiet, that I actually heard my le break. It broke at the ankle area and spiraled up . ouch. I was 38. After that, when it's snowy I scoot my feet along...like some one very very old...for safety sake. Just always be alert. Blessings to you Carol. xoxo, SusieDelete
