Snow Had Fallen, Snow On Snow

It began snowing here on Christmas Day, in early evening.   Continued throughout the 26th, with accumulation in our yard of almost fifteen inches.   The little birds have descended in grand numbers, and that has made my heart very happy.    Here are a few captured moments .... (click on photos to enlarge for better detail)

A spirea bush by my front doorsteps, laden with snow ...

Little mounds of snow


Victoria ... enthralled with the little birds




Sweet Little Chickadee ...


You just can't win the battle with the squirrels and the starlings.  This squirrel has pushed the top off the feeder and put most of his body right down into the feeding tube ...

He eventually had to come up for air ....


While Gary was shoveling snow from the driveway, I filled the feeder and set it on the ground in front of the shop door .... it didn't take long for the birds to find its new location.

Even the blue jays came for a visit ...

and, of course, the finches ....


Is there anything much more beautiful?

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Wishing everyone a wondrous New Year!

Frances your snow pictures are so beautiful. Love the birds. Can you see dad now if a squirrel was inside his feeder like that? LOL Even Victoria is beautiful sitting there looking out the window.
