A White Colorado Christmas...

We woke up to a winter wonderland today... Reminiscent of a nostalgic scene from a child's storybook, the snow was falling and forming fluffy piles on the rooftops and across the frosty landscape. We bundled up in layers and went outside. I filled the feeders and took some photos while JP shoveled snow, creating little foot paths for us to find our way. I think we have about 5 inches and counting as it continues to fall in significant amounts.... I'll post a few pics below. Merry Christmas to all!

* JP stands with shovel in hand, clearing a path to the front door...


* Small birds (I believe they are Juncos...?) peck through a layer of snow to find their seed...


* I made a covered feeding station for my squirrel friends... Now sheltered under an old chair, their food will stay dry....


* JP shovels a path up to our unfinished potting shed....

Wow! Johanna it looks beautiful. There is nothing more exciting than it snowing on Christmas! No snow here in Ohio. The sun shined all day long.

Hope you guys are having a wonderful holiday!

Merry Christmas~Kim
