Almost the first day of winter


It's snowing in the township. 


 And on our drive and car.


The nerve!


We have the happiest sparrows for acres around.
In the morning the pear tree is full of sparrows,
waiting a turn.


The chickadee and the junco have not found their way back.

  2. Chickadees are one of those things (along with the first couple of snow falls) I miss about living in the north. I have the sweetest chickadee Xmas tree ornament on the tree right now. And look at that Laura girl out shoveling your driveway!

  5. clearing snow..a good way to warm up if not done for too long!
    We're having unseasonably warm weather here...it is convenient to be able to get things done, but it doesn't feel right!

  8. At least the snow makes things lighter, at least that's what I find. But it's much harder to get around. All those extra clothes and boots and watching one's steps - it's tiring! I'm glad you have your intrepid snow shoveller :)

    Consider me chirping with your happy sparrows at these cooling images.

  18. The weatherpeople are telling us that we may wake up to some snow tomorrow morning. That will be a good reason to sleep in.

  19. I have some extra snow if you want a bit more. I've been a very bad bird feeder. I really do need to get some bird seed out there for them. -Jenn

  21. I would love to see a pear tree full of sparrows :) Sad the chickadee and junco can't find you though, maybe they'll turn up later.
    The snow is very pretty, but I'm glad I'm seeing it online and not through my window. That's too cold for me.

  25. I like to look at the snow but it is certainly an inconvenience when I have to drive somewhere. No fun at all.
