Freshly Fallen Snow

For this post I am going back to the middle of December.I share with you some scenes of one of our first good snowfalls.

I really like to see the snow fall and remain on the branches. This doesn't happen that often,as we very often get a wind either with the snow or shortly after.

No special words are needed with these pictures,except to say that all were taken on my yard and the last two from my dining room window.




Blue Jay waiting to come to the feeder to get peanuts.


The White-breasted Nuthatch also waiting his turn at the feeder.

Closing Thought taken from a perpetual calendar on Friendship:
Friends are very special.
They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.
They lend and ear,and they share a word of praise.

Absolutely gorgeous...and a couple of birds in the mix always makes snow prettier. Love that blue jay :)

We had a couple of flurries today (if you looked carefully and quickly), but nothing as beautiful as the snow in your yard. You got great pictures of the birds patiently waiting for a turn at the feeder as well.

Lovely pictures of the snow, so crisp & fresh & pure! I was thrilled when I saw the Blue Jay on the branch! That is a calendar perfect shot!

Beautiful snowy shots. I love the one with the blue jay, lending his beautiful color to the shot.

oh i love how you changed your blog. the white looks so clean & fresh for the new year!! love it! i love birdies in the snow, they look so happy & at ease. friends are the greatest. i wanted to say i feel for folks like myself who do travel & know foods from around the areas they travel, it is so tough ... you get used to enjoying those treats & then stocking up on them when you are dying for them is tough. i wonder what the border folks thought of your son and all that drink mix. maybe they wanted a drink themselves. i heard of a mother who's baby had to give away her bottle of milk in the airport & then finding more milk for them was a real problem, they had not bought more formula with them. what a pain in the rump. nuts!!

The snow is very beautiful Ruth. But the birds are even more beautiful. Diane

Love the birds and the snow. Just hope it doesn't come here.

EG CameraGirl said...

Nothing more beautiful than new-fallen snow, in my opinion. ;)

Sandra said...

I actually laughed when the jay came up. he either has an 'attitued' or is saying to you inside your warm house, hey it's cold out here. love those snow covered trees

Nancy said...

Happy New Year, Ruth. These captures of the snow are beautiful...I love the Blue Jay as he stands out against the white snow. Stay warm and be safe....

Debbie said...

There's nothing better for pictures....the bird images are beautiful!!

Ruth, such lovely images! Snow changes the perspective so much. So far we have only had a couple of very light snowfalls. But, it's been cool. Looks like the temp. is warming up this week and we'll be out of the freezing weather.

Shug said...

Beautiful images Ruth....I love the Bluejay and all the snow!!

Rose L said...

I always love photos of birds, and they really show their colors in the snow.

Beautiful scenes from your windows of the snow. I am home now from my trip to Malawi but thanks for leaving me all the comments when I was away.
