This & That


Yesterday turned out to be a nice day all though cold in the morning as you may of  seen in yesterdays post  Wordless Wednesday . But the afternoon warmed up and the sun was shining all day  not a cloud in the sky till sun set . Miggs and I went for two walks yesterday and played in the yard and watched the birdies . I went around and took photos of frozen with sunshine .

                                                          Little ice crystals on the finch feeder  .

                         Sun shining through the Cedar hedge as a little of the ice on them twinkle ever so slightly !

                                                            Icy snow on Papa’s Observatory roof  !

                             Tiny snow ice crystals  shine in the sun on the arm of my little Cedar bench Papa made for me !

                                  Trees in the valley slowly melt  ice off the branches as the sun warms them up !

Lots of different forms of ice all over the place  in the form of just ice or snow ice as the sun shines and slowly it all melts .

I like how the icy snow crunches under foot and how it looks across the fields with the odd twinkle reflecting here and there as the sun hits it at just the right angle ! Some times hard to capture twinkle on white snow  but it was there lol !

                I like how the snow crystals formed on this tree branch that is on the ground from a fallen tree and all covered in snow  gleaming in the sun shine  !

                   Little crystals all over the tired brown wild grasses as the sun warms it all up ever so slowly  all just to melt a bit and then freeze again over night  creating new ice crystals !

The sky’s were a brilliant blue yesterday and the sun was amazing and yet some things still remained frozen . This field is beside us .

Not much snow on the sides of the roads  as the sunny days we have had has melted them down more and more each day . It is nice to have cleared dry roads to walk on  especially in the sun shine .

Even the birdies were happy in the sun regardless of the cold air  the good thing was no winds  and that made it even better !

                                         Miggs .. well she loves the cold even more so when there is sun shining .

This morning  is cloudy and gloomy and we are to be getting some snow falling , how much ?  well that depends , we always get a different accumulation in the valley then the higher ground folk lol sometimes we get more and some times less and some times none . I guess it is all up to mother nature . So Miggs and I are off for our walk before the snow sets in  then putter for the rest of the day .

                                                                       Until next time

We always seem to be at polar opposites don't are cold, we are warming up. We are hot, you are cooler in the summer, and then it tips all over again.

But at least you got to get out and get some lovely frosty shots. And the Migs...always adorable.
