It started snowing on our trip north last weekend. By the time we reached my folks' house, there was about an inch on the ground. Poor little birds had to dig for their supper.

I foolishly had the snow tires removed the week before when it was 70ยบ.

Both, birds and I, had lofty goals...

oh, if you get birdie shots like these, you might just have to move back 'home', dearie! or at least visit more often! :)

Ugh. You, the birds, and I all had lofty goals. Will it ever end?
Want to vacation somewhere we can actually SEE and feel spring??

Those are beautiful shots! Love the red.....(is it a cardinal?)

dawn, yes, this is a male. he would fly back to the tree and feed his "lady friend". she may have been too shy to come this close to the house.

i was looking at kayak.com the other day. RT flights from milwaukee to cancun were $350! i'd settle for st. louis right now. ;o)

Beautiful photos, looks like the birds at your folk's place are more cooperative with posing than my quail.--Inger

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
