A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood


On Friday we awoke to snow -- two inches and a bit...

Enough to be pretty without being troublesome...

I spent a lot of time taking pictures of birds -- through slightly foggy windows ...

Cardinals...

Purple finches...goldfinches...

Too cold to stay outside for sharper pictures...

We had lots of customers at the buffet on the railing...

I couldn't stop taking pictures...

There'll be more tomorrow.

Such beautiful photos, your place looks as though a Narnia enchantment has been placed on it! How I envy you your beautiful Cardinals, we don't have them out west...thank you for posting photos of them.

I don't know if I would like to live where you live :-) but you have such views that sometimes I think I would give it a try! What a treat with this cardinal with such a background!

I thought of Narnia too, Victoria. It was 18 when we went to bed...

Glad you got the snow accumulation yesterday...and you definitely captured the best pics. Sure, more would be appreciated! Keep 'em coming.

My favorite winter photos, cardinals in the snow!! Just gorgeous. I wish I could get those kinds of shots!

Beautiful. The best thing about snow is that it brings the birds to the feeders in large numbers.
