Graceful Sunlit Sunday

This day the softly lit snow just seemed graceful...
From the bedroom window you can see the pattered footprints from the birds and squirrels that lead to and surround the bird feeder station.  The sun is there but the wintry sky is acting as a filter today.

We've had a tough week temperature wise which I'm sure a lot of you've also had.  I awoke to -22 (F) degrees a few days ago and that's not a wind chill factor- that's straight up.

Glistening snow fluffed on every surface…the colder it is the more it sparkles!

Patiently waiting for spring!

Here Comes the Sun!

It's always such a joy to see the sun coming up over the horizon especially after a difficult couple of days weather wise. 
24 hours earlier white-outs and blizzard like conditions overtook the area.
I guarantee Valentine's Day was a bust at the restaurants around here!

The thermometer was as -12 degrees this morning.
Creaking sounds come from the woods as the trees adjust to the extreme temps.

The birds were even reluctant to come to the feeders but as the sun rose more and more they all started showing up.  I tried to capture some pictures through my windows- I'm staying inside!

The Beatle's tune "Here Comes the Sun" always pops up in my mind on days like this.

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun and I say it's all right….

Looking out my office window as I tapped away at this post.
The day is looking promising!
