Winter walk

 It is very cold this afternoon, 15 F.
A breeze from the west makes it feel even colder.
The sun warmed my face when I sat out on the deck with the birds.
I was wrapped in my blankets and protected from the wind.
I enjoy the winter birds.
I enjoy the winter sunshine.
When a gust of wind blew snow off the roof
my backyard was filled with glitter, a gorgeous sight.


We received about 6 inches of snow yesterday.
My husband has shoveled the driveway and the walks.
He stays active in the winter.


I need to walk each day
to get my exercise.


I bundled up and walked around my neighborhood.


The crows fly over every afternoon.

Clear, cold winter skies.
Taking the camera on my walk
I forget to be cold.

I just love that dear little puffy bird. And the cardinal looks as if it's about to say something very wise.
Yes, bundle up, it's cold!!
I like to walk every day as well, but some days, it's just too cold for me.
Stay warm.

Lovely photos! I found an old comment by you on my blog. Would you go to it and take a look at the bird hanging upside-down? I would love to get your opinion of what kind of bird it is. You'll find it about three posts down the blog. Thank you! Jeanne
