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!

  1. Lovely Winter photos. Wonderful to be able to view the birds. We have snow also and the sun is out bright today and the weather is not quite as freezing as it has been the last week.

    1. There are a lot of birds that do go south but there are quite a few that stay.

  7. Beautiful snowy photos of your backyard. You have a lot of snow!! We have the same winter activities in our area but we don't participate in them any more. Plus, the past week had just been too cold to get out and do much of anything. I do enjoy watching the birds though. ;) Have good week! Pamela

  11. Love the snow pictures... they look like my back yard. Again this morning we woke up to about 6 inches of extra snow... But we did get some sun so that made it better. Newest follower.

  12. Hello, Liz

    I think you have a bit of the poet in you, with your lovely way of describing these bright, snowy photos. The beauty of a sunny winter day is so clearly evident in these pictures. Thank you for bringing them to Sunlit Sunday and have a lovely week.

  13. Liz, Thanks so much for stopping by!!
    My Mom could not bear to stay in the house after my Dad died. She stayed there one night without him and then stayed with my sister until she was able to move to a senior apartment. They both would have been 93 this year....

    Hugs,
    Deb
