If you live close to the east coast of the United States, you know we had a northeasterly snow storm (Greyson) barrel through the last couple of days. Along with record breaking low temperatures, we know winter has begun in earnest.
This morning readings were much lower, but at 10:44am you can see we are still quite cold. Those of my friends and family that live far to the north and west are used to these types of winters.
We are wearing our warmest clothing. Wool sweaters, polar fleece pajamas, wool socks, polar fleece pants. When I sit down there is always an afghan pulled over my lap. I'm thankful for a warm home and a good heating system that keeps the cold outside.
Gazing out the windows the birds are eating quite frequently, I imagine to stay warm. This morning I intentionally sat by the window to view their comings and goings. Here is what I observed in a ten minute time frame.
Today is National Bird Day. I hope you will take time to observe the beauty birds bring to our environment. If you can, I hope you will provide a safe place for them to eat in your garden. Believe me, they bring a lot of joy to our home! ♥
