On Tuesday morning the tree branches were decorated with a frosty covering of snow, making the drive to work a magical experience. Our school was on a one-hour delay because of the icy and snowy roads.
This little Junco is one of many birds filling their tummies against the winter chill.
Jasmine sits on my husband's desk and watches the birds through the window, whiskers twitching.
Goldfinches busily eat the seeds of Rudbeckia triloba...a good thing because it spreads seeds alarmingly, and I have yet to deadhead it. I'll have plenty of seedlings to weed out in the spring, so eat lots little birds! (Click to enlarge for detail. There are 3 birds in the picture)
Yesterday I baked cranberry-orange nut bread.
And a pumpkin pie for my dear husband.
