First Day of Winter

Looking out the window today, it is hard to believe yesterday was the first day of Winter. The sky is a bright blue and the birds are acting as if it were Spring. If it wasn't for the brisk cold air that cuts through you when you step outside, I would too. As I was getting wood to put into the fire this morning, I heard wild Geese making their familiar Geese call . I looked up to see them flying above in their V formation . It stirs emotion inside me every time I witness this. I can not help it.

They are Beyond Beautiful ~

Violets blooming in my kitchen window.

A bird contemplating on taking a bath.

I purchased this blown glass bird feeder and hung it in my Japanese Maple tree in the back yard. I am wondering why I haven't done this a long time ago? I think I have enjoyed the birds as much as the birds have enjoyed the feed!

*Listening to STING ~ IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT and NORHA JONES ~ THE FALL this morning as I finish up the gift wrapping.

I hope you have a beautiful day!


  1. Oh Angela, your pictures are beyond beautiful.

    I'm feeling the brisk air this morning as I finish up my Christmas baking.

    For some reason, my English Toffee didn't turn out...and the sun is shinning. Go figure...I guess we will eat it with a spoon!!!

    Merry Christmas my love and give all your sweet family our love too.
    Love and Hugs

  2. I feel the same way when the geese go over Angela. I always get a lump in my throat.
    I like watching the birds at the feeders too, that is, if there is anything left to eat when the squirrels have raided them!

  3. I love your photos and though it was the first day of winter your photos made me feel like the first day of spring!
    I haven't even begun the wrapping part this year just got away from me I will finish it all on the day of the 24th!!

    love you all
