    Here are some snow scenes I took this morning. I'm sure they would have been better if I hadn't been shooting through windows!

    Oh dear it doesn't look as though winter wants to let go in your area. The snow does look lovely though but some sunshine would no doubt be welcome.

    Is that a mourning dove hanging on the top feeder in the last photo?

    I live in PA and I think we will get maybe an inch or two tonight.

    It is pretty, but I sure wish it would all go away. It's suppose to snow here in Virginia this week.

    That could be a dove in that pic. There are quite a few out there.Usually eat seeds off the ground.

    sewNsow, That is beautiful. Yes ad Donm says we are in for that same storn system tonight but it will only leave a dusting or one inch with is. We sure enjoy the beauty of it though. Winter will leave you soon enough. Be patient. My bonsai are budding out in the greenhouse and that's a good sign. :p

    Wow... so much snow.
    Almost makes me feel guilty cause I can already enjoy the snowdrops, hyacinths, helleborus, crocus...

    It won't last long.I heard we might get some rain. Rain gets rid of snow in a hurry. I'm thinking of the moisture!It means our gravel road will be very sloppy.

    O.K. 2 more weeks of this and then we get sunny and warm or we have roast groundhog.

    Oh my goodness, that's a lot of snow! Very nice photo's, amazing how snow can turn the place into a fairytale landscape. I'm sure those little birds are very happy to have your feeder there, must be a joy to watch them :stew1:
    Over here in The Netherlands we are in for a cold spell with some snow, but I'm sure it will not be quite as much as over there in the U.S. :)
