Winters Quiet !


That is what it has been here , quiet !  Not much going on  . The air has been cold but the sun has been shining for the most part  the winds have been fairly calm for a change and snow has been little .  Miggs and I have been enjoying our morning walks and playing in the yard after as well as enjoying the birdies at the feeders .   I went around and looked for things to photograph and found  that winter again shows me how pretty it can be  dispite the cold .

As much as I get tired of winter  regaurdless of it being a harsh winter or not I often find myself enjoying it’s prettyness and even the plainess  or the constant white of it all .

                I always seem to fined some colour some where about that just seems to brighten things up abit  as well as the sun that shines on it all .

I guess it is all how you look at it , you can look at it as dull and colourless or you can look at it as a new challenging canvas  and that my friends is how I get through a quiet  winter !   I layer up get out there and enjoy what winter has to offer  with a different kind of beauty .

                                              Wishing all those in the snow storm path be safe and all have a good weekend !

                                                                                               Until next time .

Miggs looks as though he enjoys it as much as you. I can't wait for Tia to see some snow as I am not sure she has ever experienced it, or icicles forming on her beard!! Winter is truly beautiful and you are right in how you tackle it. Keep warm xx

Such pretty birds, especially the chickadee. I remember those icycles that we would break off the gutters and suck on. Yuck! Wonder how many germs there were.
