|Just beautiful Sharon, I especially like that last one, what an intense red against the white ice and snow those cardinals are! |
Stay warm in confidence that this winter will soon pass and you will soon be enjoying real blooms!

|Sharon, these photo's are absolutely stunning. I love seeing the bright red cardinals against the white snow and ice.|
You be careful on those slick surfaces and I'm so glad you're feeling better

|A pair of doves are here this morning, along with juncos and chickadees, dozens of cardinals, some kind of blackbirds, and something coal black with a little band of white lining his wings. More, as well, but some are out of town visitors, I think, because I don't recognize them. I did get more pictures today, but the doves are so shy. I think I might have missed them.|
Worst winter in years but my daughter reminded me of pictures taken the year she was 2 and her brother was 4, the snow was higher than they were tall. I reminded her that she would have been 2 in 1978. That's been awhile.
Something about all this snow for all these weeks tells me that a drought is not in our near future.
Thanks ladies, glad you enjoyed my 'blooms'.

Sharon I too agree, that you are so blessed to have the variety of wild ones right outside your windows.
Am so glad you were prudent enough to realize walking on ice is not a good thing.
Your kindness to your feathered friends is a good example to us all.
Those red birds must surely get your creative juices running. Have you painted them?
Thanks for sharing ......

To tell the truth I paint just about everything I see. Birds included.

Can you show an example?
Love seeing your creations.

|I'm planning to paint some of these bird pictures, maybe the squirrel that you see in today's blog post. I have given or sold all the other critter paintings, but I'll search to see if I have digital pictures of any of them. |
Anyway, this was the last painting I did; a Christmas gift to my son. Thanks for asking about my paintings!

What a wonderful gift. I know these will be family treasures for years to come.
Will look forward to seeing some of those old photos when you have time.

|Sharon ~ What a delightful blog you are doing. I so very much loved the bird photos. And then I clicked the comments to tell you how much I have enjoyed your posts and I see this amazing painting you have done for your son. You are so very talented. I am so glad there is an website like this one so I can see and hear about all of these amazing things!|

|@Toni what beautiful words to read this morning! Thank you so much. The birds and the paintings carried me through our wretched winter; weather like that is just about as tough on gardeners as it is on the plants. Happily we all usually survive.|
I'm glad you found ATP, it's a great place to learn so many new and interesting things but it's also a little like feeling right at home.
So nice to have you with us.
