Winter wonderland scenes and creatures

Heavy fog this morning, then it snowed for hours and hours. A light snow, though, enough to blanket the ground again and add some winter spirit to the trees.

I love to watch the birds enjoying my homemade seed treats.

Never thought I'd enjoy winter again, or secretly wish for more snow in January. We even bought crazy carpets to go sledding down our front yard hill, and maybe get snowshoes in the new year to keep to our commitment of daily walks and taking in all that Nature offers.

Whiskey Jack in flight with a treat yesterday.

Blue Jay and Whiskey Jack called a truce to share, rather than fight over food.

Overlooking our front field.

This little guy/gal was fun to watch.

We need more snow to take our crazy carpets down the hill.

Looks like it will be a white Christmas after all!
