Snow!

I had been wanting a real snowfall, and it finally came last Thursday.

3aBy noon we could barely see the landscape in front of us.

4 (1)I felt bad for the birds who were searching for food, so put a large plastic platter on our patio table and filled it with birdseed.

It took less than a minute for the seekers to come.

I love a snowy day!

When Cerwin called his mother that evening, she told him that one of the nurses took her out in the snow so she could see and feel it. 🙂

5The next time we visited – and that nurse was there, she showed us this picture.

I asked her to send it to me.

  1. Wonderful snow photos, Doris — wonderful bird photos too! The idea of bird fights over food is foreign to me, but I imagine it happens fairly often in backyards where you are! And that’s a great shot of Cerwin’s mom enjoying the snow!
