Early one morning I watched as this beautiful Sparrow sat in the crab apple tree just watching the snow fall.
Even the hornet's nest that's been hanging in our maple tree since summer has a dusting of snow on it.
I sprinkled some bird seed on top of one of my snow covered urns and a Cardinal stopped by for a bite to eat.
The bright red berries on the Crab Apple tree were coated in ice.
A male Blue Jay perches atop a pedestal in the garden.
Ornamental grasses add drama and interest to winter gardens.
I found this Pileated Woodpecker searching for insects in one of our trees.

This adorable little Junco was sitting in the crab apple tree enjoying the winters day.
Sometimes (usually about the middle of January :-) ) I wonder...just briefly...what it'd be like to live where it's warm year round. I know though, that I would dearly miss the changing of the seasons. Nature provides a special beauty to each season ~ winter...spring...summer & fall!
