I don't know if I like the snow as much as I like winter. It's very peaceful here in the winter. I feed the outdoor birds starting in December and stop in May. This is my favorite part of winter. Under the canopy of a huge pine tree I spread out about 4 pounds of no mess birdseed. I also have 3 suet feeders.

The birds wait in the trees for me. As soon as I come out the door they start calling each other to tell them it's feeding time. I like the sense of community the birds have. The blue jays seem so aggressive with their fierce calls but they are actually generous. They call out to all their neighboring jays to share the food. There may be a hundred birds under the pine tree when it gets very cold.

Then we have the squirrels. They come and surround the base of the tree in a buffalo stance. My husband created a song called "The Ring of Squirrels." He takes out his guitar and sings it to the tune of Johnny Cash's song "Ring of Fire."

Last year I had a juvenile hawk eat bird seed along side the other birds. It was so unbelievable that I grabbed pictures. I think he must have been near starvation to eat bird seed.

Virgin snow in the garden before the dog messed it up. :kiss2:

He was not keen to stay out when I threw a snowball at him. :lol-2:

The cat is not keen to go out at all. :roll2:

We have a winter snow warning for tomorrow now. I love how the snow makes everything outside lighter. I have outside lighting and it looks gorgeous in the snow.

My view this morning:
received_162169779000677.jpeg

Difficult to be upset with such beauty.

Winter is here--usually we endure insufferable cold temps for months (Dec-Mar), but it has arrived, just, now. I woke up to ice crystals (diamonds LOL) in the air and hoarfrost. I recall the last huge dump of snow--Dec 22--but nothing to speak of since. Still white outside, but happily the prolonged frigid temps have eluded us.

Then I looked outside to see walker, joggers and cyclists. it is -16C!!!

Stay safe , healthy and warm! Snowballs, outdoor ice skating and toboggans--here we come!

There is nothing more beautiful than a fresh snow with no tracks. When I was little I used to sit by our living room window in the evening when it snowed and look at it, it looked like diamonds sparkling. I do miss that.

We just got back from a lovely walk and I couldn't agree with you more. Something so peaceful and soul enriching about the pristine snow and the calm quiet that surrounds it.

. if I drink enough beer I can write my first AND last name in yellow.
But if I drink too much beer, or I'm hanging from a rope, the letters get all messed up.
Then I don't like the snow.

I love snow because its just so pretty!!!
I used to hate winter, to the point I escape the country for a whole month or more. I can’t stand cold at all! But since I invested in some good winter coats I’m good in winter now. It does make huge difference! I still hate to drive in snow tho, but no complaints about bad winter other than the drive now.

I was born and raised in a country which have 90F-100F all year long, summer all year long :lol: Its so hot that after shower we came out from the bathroom and start sweating in less than a minute because its too hot and too humid :lol: So cold was like a complete torture for me. But this past couple years I know that fully equipped winter outfits and a good one, does make a huge difference for someone who’s afraid of cold like me. Now I appreciate all 4 seasons, each brings their own beauty. Fall is my fav season of all.

I love snow, as long as my loved ones and I are not on a highway somewhere during a snow storm....

Snow is beautiful, much nicer than than the gray, dull landscapes of autumn (esp. November) we would have without it.

Snow sparkles like diamonds.

Snow makes me feel like a child again.:)

Haha I love winter clothes. Comfy and cozy sweaters, long pants and leggings, over the knee boots and bright snow boots.
It is one of my favorite things about winter! LOL.

We all vary and it's all good. I just find winter clothing so comfy cozy.
And TBT I prefer it to summer clothing. :)

I totally agree. I'm typing this while wearing my sweats, sitting under a blanket with Pearl.
