A Dusting Of Snow


I love the first snow fall, it is so pretty and mild. The minuet I let Miggy out to do her business she was as happy as anything to see snow , she ran around the yard like a mad dog snuffling and licking up what little snow there was !  Miggy and I went for a nice walk this morning whilst it was gently snowing , all was still and quiet . 

When we returned home the birds in the yard were feeding like crazy, not so quiet then ! I put out the peanuts  and the Blue Jays turned up . I was worried that our Red Bellied Woodpecker I named Charlie wasn’t coming back as long before now last year he was here , but to my surprise I heard him squawking and saw him for a second as he flew by. It takes them a bit to get used to the movement in the yard again so soon I will be taking his photo once again ! It is nice to see all the winter birds returning !   I took some photos this morning . I have been waiting for some snow just to get a different look and feel to my photos !


                                         Miggy playing with her rope !



                     I love the trees with snow on them !


                          Blue Jay scoping the area as to where the peanuts are !


                                            Found them !!!!

          Don't think we are to get much more snow. I prefer snow cause Miggy is such a mucky mess when its just wet and muddy ! At least snow is just wet and if she gets mud on her all she has to do is walk in the snow to wash it off . I have gone through so many towels and washed her feet  , legs , belly and face at least 4 times a day !   She's our Muck pup in this weather !


                                    Until next time . Hope you all have a great day !

How sweet! Love seeing Miggy playing in the snow. Our two will be doing the same when we get some snow here. :)

Wonderful pics of the blue jay!!! And I love Miggy!!! Oh, I hope we get a little snow for Christmas. And then I hope it is gone by New Year's for the rest of the winter. Is that asking too much????

Have a great weekend,

Oh yes, the photos are just beautiful. I love seeing Miggy enjoying the snow. The bluebird is a sweet as it can be.

Miggy is like a kid playing in the first snowfall.

OH MAN, perfect shot of the jay, he truly was excited.

Now send some snow our way so it can start looking like Christmas here too.

Snow definitely has a beauty to it, especially if its fresh snow. Love the pictures of your dog and looks like Miggy is having a ball out there. Richard
