Seems like this has been the most sun filled winter that I can remember in a long long time. I guess it's due to the fact that we haven't had as many snowstorms as normal. We are way below the snow totals received over the previous few years which I am delighted about!
A year ago at this time we had received 183"and this year we have only received 101" !
This quote made me happy so I copied it from the net
and added a border.
We all need a little bit of optimism!
For a few brief moments the sun shines over here on this fence. We are beginning a warming trend and there is a crust forming on the snow and even the fence wall is crystallized.
I'm excited to see the sun rising earlier and earlier and how it's shifted on the landscape which are more signs of spring coming!
I need a bigger lens. I tried to capture how the trees in the background were being highlighted by the sun. I always say I'm glad I'm a morning person and get to witness these little things because they make me happy.
Upon opening the door to take pictures I also enjoyed the sounds of the birds chirping away. Mr. Cardinal is a regular and couldn't look more beautiful against the stark contrast of the snow.
I was going to close the closet door but decided it added to the ambiance created by the sunlight streaming in.
I am prepping for St. Patrick's Day. I wanted to see how my centerpiece looks with the sun shining on it. I had a little fun with this one by cutting an opening in the top. You can see a hint of some forsythia I added in the background- yes I am rushing spring!
The black squirrels were out and about happily bouncing and chasing each other!
Seems like a happy morning to all!
