Cold But Sunny


Woke this morning to frost and temps were -5ºC  or 23ºF . I like the crisp cold frosty mornings when the sun is rising makes a very pretty scene .

Miggs and I have been going for our walks later in the mornings when it is a bit warmer .

Yesterday we were out playing in the yard then I went around and took photos .


            Miggs just love’s being out side . She stays out all day then comes in for the night !


        I found some more  different looking fungi on one of our trees . I like how fungi takes on all different shapes and forms and creates different patterns on them as well  .


We have two of these Nut hatch around and they are not shy at all  they practically run me down going from feeder to feeder  , they fly so low and close I heard him swoosh past my ear !


Seeds on our Cedar trees . I love how these Cedar’s keep their green through out the colder season  looks so pretty when there is frost or snow on them .


                                              Leaves frozen in a puddle of water !


                                The other Nut hatch in our tree cracking a seed !


My feeders are below this Blossom tree and all the birdies just fill these branches as they sit to rest .


The wind picked up and was cold so all I saw were little puff balls of feathers with feet as they try to keep warm in the sun whilst  the cold winds blow  .



As all  the trees are bare now  I can see the nests that once were tucked away in the leaves . This is a Robins nest in the tree that's between our sheds .

As much as I am not a winter person I must admit I like it for the  white wonderland it creates and that it gives me a new canvas to photograph.

                                  Until next time hope you all have good day !

I agree that winter is rather unpleasant, but it does look pretty especially when there is frost and snow.

No snow yet? But it will come...poor birds.

Miggy looks so happy always, she's a real upbeat personality.

Elaine, enjoyed all the photos and chuckled after reading the comment that you were not a winter person especially considering whe you live.
