So, what is there to say about more snow? Friday night and Saturday, over 8 inches of snow fell on our property. This morning, the thermometer read 9 degrees. That’s pretty chilly for a Southern California gal! The little birds didn’t mind tip-toeing in the snow and cold on my front steps, though.
The snow dusted the Johnnies on my porch.
I threw out extra bird seed for the birds and they came to my deck by the dozens and dozens! I love watching them. There were Titmice (is that the plural of Titmouse?), Chickadees, Juncos, Purple Finches, Gold Finches, a Towhee, a Bluebird, Cardinals, Sparrows and Blue Jays. Most of them behaved courteously, but the Blue Jays would scare everybody else away.
And sometime the Juncos didn’t want to share their space. But I think everyone got plenty to eat. The "snow cone" has yellow Johnnies and blue Muscari planted in it.
The snow sparkles so beautifully when the sun comes out. I actually captured the glints in this picture. In case you can’t tell, snow has been a rarity in my life.
These Johnnies are a little more exposed than the ones on my porch, but thankfully they weren’t completely buried so I can still enjoy them while I continue to wait for spring.
And wait. And wait. And wait.
Have a beautiful day!
