Hello - and we still have some of our snow from Friday night with us. After yesterday's sunshine and again today, had expected more of the snow to be melted. Our temps didn't go as low as the 6F predicted for last night, but we did get to 17F, which is pretty cold for our area. Yesterday morning, got a few pictures, and while I know this little snowfall is not a lot compared to what many of you get, it's really Big Deal for our area here in Upstate South Carolina. Most things come to a screeching halt, but we did see cars managing to pass in front of the house all day yesterday. There's a big steep hill that one must traverse to leave our subdivision and get out to the local highway that runs past where we live. Didn't see the same cars returning (as can be the case if they can't make it up the hill due to ice), so guess the roads didn't ice under the snow.
Hope you enjoy these. I was especially pleased to be able to capture the little red guy. Tried to get some at the feeder, but I was looking through a window & screen, and results were awful. Decided to open the window, slide up the screen, and was able to snap this little fella. However the air was cold enough, we didn't want that window open very long; also the feeder is close to the window - which is by our kitchen table - so doubt the birds would have felt easy to be at the feeder with this human so close. We saw a lot of bird activity yesterday, and one of the cardinals that visited, was such a glorious golden-brown reddy color. We've seen these before, but usually we either see the brilliant red males, or the drabber red-brown females. I'm sure the golden one was a female, but she had more of the brilliant red in her plumage than the females usually do, and the golden feathers were just so dressy.
Also just posted a new card in the Cards by Friends, and have a few more to share - that were waiting on us when we got back home.
Will be trying to get round to visiting later this evening. Hugs & thanks for popping by. Stay warm & safe if there's 'weather' where you are!
