Sunlit winter garden...

I thought I'd drop a few pictures of my backyard garden area as it sits in this very cold month of January!

We had about 10" of snow the other night and then the next morning it brightened up to be a beautiful sunlit day!

The birds and squirrels run in and out under the snow laden shrubs.

The water fountain sits quietly...

The garden benches and lawn furniture are covered with protective dressings and now blanketed by the snow...

Keeping the birds fed is a must...woodpeckers, chickadees, finches, junco, nuthatches, tufted titmouse, cardinals and mourning doves visit regularly. 

This Hairy Woodpecker was rat-a-tat-tatting!

  The birds scrape off the snow as they work their way into the feeders. We enjoy watching them in them morning while having our coffee.  I sure wish we had a lot more of these bright sunlit days! Everybody seems to be in a better mood when we do!

If you are a cross country skier, a downhill skier or a snowmobile enthusiast our are provides lots of fun!  I admit though that I am pretty much an indoor gal at this time of year.  I'd rather dig dirt than snow!

I hope your winter is going along well!
Can't wait for spring to see some bright pretty colors again!
