Snow!

Woohoo it's snowing!!  Well, it was for over an hour at  least... I think it's raining now.  Anyhow, it always makes me a little giddy.  I took this snowy opportunity to watch my feeders for a bit, which I haven't done much this winter...

You can't tell that it's snowing in most photos but I swear it was!

Add some warm lemon-blueberry bread fresh from the oven and some hot coffee and you have the perfect winter morning!

  1. Ooooh, I like that flicker! But please, keep the snow down there. People in the Seattle area can't drive in it. :)

  2. Hiya Jen,

    Yes, me too like that flicker. Looks like a kind of woodpecker?
    And the background tree for the starling , is that a contorted willow or hazel?

  8. As I'm sure you are aware, your Junco's look different then ours in Massachusetts. Is that the Oregon species of Junco?
