The Joys of Winter

January 2017 is about done or may be history by the time you read this and we are at February.
The first month of this year has flown by. 

Come sit at the window in my house and enjoy the views I see regularly.Oh,I might even offer you a cup of coffee or tea as we chat.
Those snow laden branches are something I love to see.


While we watch, we may be lucky enough to have a visit from a Red-breasted Nuthatch.He is a little cutie, in my opinion.I've had as many as three of these birds at the feeder at once.


The falling snow covers the branches of the evergreens and weighs them down.


I enjoy watching a heavy snowfall, especially when I know that I don't have to leave the yard.
All the dirt and leaves from fall are covered with a beautiful layer of pure white.


While we watch from the living room window, we are treated to this sight.The sunbeams highlight the falling snow.What a gorgeous scene God created for us to enjoy.

Can I get you another cup of coffee or tea? 
I do hope you enjoyed this brief visit and will join me again, soon.
I'll be looking for you, but until then,remember:
The universe is filled with the evidence of God’s Greatness.

  3. I'll bet that sweet little nuthatch is thinking you're pretty cute, too, and is feeling very grateful for the food you provide. The last shot, with the sunbeams through the tree, is extraordinary.

  5. Thank you for this wonderful visit. It is a Winter wonderland! I love the cute little Nuthatch. We have Nuthatches, but not the red breasted ones. I love seeing them walk down trees head first.

  6. Beautiful winter scenes, Ruth! All our snow has melted so I'm waiting for the next storm to pass over to bring back our white blanket of snow. Nuthatches are very sweet. I see them here too but can never get a photo as they are too quick for me

  15. YES ---fly on down here and bring me some coffee... We'll sit and chat for hours....

    Love your snow pictures.. Are you having more snow than usual this winter? We just aren't getting anything... Usually by now, we have had at least a couple of small ones... Maybe we'll see some in Arkansas.

    Love the header. AND--that nuthatch is so pretty. Bless his heart.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  18. Ruth, Lovely winter scenes! If winter scenes can be lovely! Yes, I think they can. All our white winter scenes are gone right now. It's been mild, above freezing as high as 10 this month. Right now it's 5 but has been cold at night because we are getting that arctic outflow. We may even get some more snow this week. I hope it's brief! I've already had enough!
