This is the scene out my front door this morning.
It began thundering about 4 am and the snow started about 8 am. 6-8″ is predicted by tonight but I think we already have 6″! I have shoveled the front walk 3 times and fed the birds at least 4 times. There are so many birds in the yard – I even saw a cardinal which I NEVER see. There are a gazillion juncos as well as blackbirds and even some yellow winged blackbirds and everybody is hungry!
There is a group of 5 or 6 downy woodpeckers and a pair of red bellied woodpeckers. I am feeding them on my sidewalk because the snow is so deep out to the feeders which I’ve filled once already. The poor birds!
Here is another incident from this morning – tipped off the windowsill by Millie, I think. Millie is one of my very favorite cats but this is nearly unforgivable.
This was my most very very favorite vanilla pot because it had the scallops around the rim.
On the other hand, I’ve always said I was going to use my antiques every day so I could enjoy them instead of putting them away where they were “safe” and out of view probably. So I’ll save these pieces of the rim and put them in the rock garden – if it ever gets to be spring and summer.
Oh my goodness but there’s a lot of snow to move!
