Not a bird, but a squirrel

This morning with camera in hand, I sat on my back porch hoping to take pictures of birds. I waited and waited, drank two large cups of coffee, but not a bird to be seen. 

However, there was a squirrel running back and forth on the fence. So after a while, he got his picture taken.

Here is a picture just before he jumped in the tree.

Hopefully, bird pictures next time, but squirrels make good art too.

Springtime Snow in Colorado

We had planned on working in the yard today.

But someone had a different idea.

A beautiful idea...

A Springtime snow.

 The raised garden beds will not be planted.

The garden statues are all wearing tall snow hats.

Flowers are blanketed with snow.

The cherub on my planter appears to be sleeping.

There is peace in my little piece of the world today.

Grateful and awed by the beauty of a Springtime snow.

Spring Window in January

Even though it is January and there is snow on the ground, that doesn't mean you can't have Springtime in your kitchen window.  This window is above my sink. At this time of year, there is not too much to see outside, so I decided to add cut flowers in small vases, a bird clock, cherubs, and  house plants in decorative urns to my windowsill.
I chose pink carnations and baby's breath for my small vases. These flowers are beautiful, smell wonderful, and are long-lasting.

        A simple and beautiful way to add a little Springtime to your January.
