Snow on Sunday

We had snow again today. Not a lot according to mum as it didn't take her long to clear off the snow from the driveway and patio. You can click on the pictures to biggify.
And Vir-ginger went out with her into the cold! First she jumped up on the snow eating machine, but mum said she couldn't stay there.
Then she went and jumped into the snowbank, still with that smile on her face.
Then up on the post to watch mum work.
Here is the birdie feeder all cleaned up from the snow and topped off with seed for the birdies. Mum had filled it on Friday and they had eaten half of what she had put in. The wire around the feeder is to keep the squirrels out of the feeder. The birdies have no problem getting in to eat the seeds.
And we had a special fevver visitor today. A red-bellied woodpecker. We have seen them before but never gotted a picture of them. He was getting seeds from the feeder.
Then he would fly into the tree to eat the seeds and then go back for more to eat. It was lots of fun watching the fevvers in the snow today.
And here you can see the snow still falling, along with the people who live behind us playing in the snow. He had a snow travelling monster out and was pulling his little boy on a sled. He was going furry slow and the machine was not making lots of noise. Mum said that was good, as the trail by us is only for non-monster travels. Not far away the trail can be used by the snow monsters.
Hope the rest of you had a good day, we did.

We had our first "snow" today, Mom says prob'ly not even an inch, but they weren't expectin' it. They had gone to a movie and were surprised when they came out and saw it!
Purrty fev-vers, thanks for showin' us pictures!

I'm glad that the snow wasn't so deep that your Mom couldn't shovel it easily. We got snow here today, too, and it's still coming down. I like your birdie shots. Did Vir-ginger get warmed up again?

I think Vir-Ginger gets the smile from you!

Momma won't let Sunny and Cloudy out now, she says their colors might fade. Now I am worried that Mistrie's colors will fade, she is out alla time.

Vir-Ginger is a cat for all seasons!
Mr. Redbird looks like he would be a lot of fun to play staking games with.

That is what our yard looked like on Saturday. The young beans wish that we had one of those quite monsters so that we could pull them around wif it.

Those are great photos! That birdie looks very cool!

We are having our first snowfall of the winter, so I'm experiencing my first snow! It looks neat falling from the sky but it's cold! So I'm not really liking it.

Red-bellied woodpeckers like suet, too. If you can put up a suet bag, you'll have lots of w'peckers for kitty TV entertainment...

Virginger got to go out, but Derb did not?

Probably better...cold on the feet can be quite uncomfortable!
