The snow has continued to fall quietly all morning. I found myself sitting in the breakfast nook, concentrating on a jigsaw puzzle, when I glanced out the window and saw how beautiful everything had suddenly become. So before I could talk myself out of venturing out there (it was still snowing), I quickly bundled up, grabbed the camera and was outside.
I continue to be fascinated with the clothespins. I just like ‘em is all. I like the vintage wine action at Florabella, too.
The patio off the breakfast nook.
And sigh some more.
Standing at the edge of the wood, all I could hear was the tiny pellets of sleet hitting the snow. Then it would turn back into flakes. Yesterday my husband told me that “the outer loop is back open again.” I asked him which one, around DC? Baltimore? What was he talking about?
Then he told me, “no . . . the outer loop around the property.”
Ah! Now I see. Well, unfortunately it’s filled in again with the snow, but I could see where he’d already started making the path again.
More birds, although it’s getting to the point where the glass is so covered with snow and moisture that getting a decent photo is next to impossible.
Above, a male ‘slate-colored’ or ‘dark-eyed’ juncoe awaits a turn at one of the feeders.

Oh, why hello.
I’ll continue to check in through this storm. As I write, George is asleep on his couch. He and his master were out all morning shoveling and walking. I can hear him dreaming and yipping in his sleep.
Two friends have had their submissions posted in Pioneer Woman’s shallow depth-of-field photo assignment and I was so happy for the both of them. Sprucehill and Bush Babe’s entries can both be found by clicking the links to their names. Many of the entries are nothing short of amazing, so be sure to check out some of the beautiful photography this assignment offers.
Way to go, my friends!
Until later then,
PS ~ Forgive me for posting so often. It helps keep me from going cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
