Winter may not be over yet in my world but spring is beginning to whisper.
Even the birds are beginning to seem busier and out longer during the day.
Some years the trees bud out too soon and even leaf out to get zapped by the cold.
So far the early signs of spring are slow enough to bode well for the growing season without getting too far ahead of itself.

I know a lot of you have been hit by more snow than you want and may be tired of it.
I decided to feature snow shots this week because we had my favorite kind of snow Friday night and Saturday morning.
It was soft and fluffy snow which looked beautiful in the trees and on the ground, but the roads were perfectly clear.
It wasn't very cold so I could go outside without gloves and take pictures.
The snow and sleet we had two weeks ago was good for the children who wanted to go sledding. This weekend's snow wasn't good for sledding but was good for building snowmen and for snow ball fights.
I am still a kid in some ways and able to enjoy the beauty of snow but I am also at an age where I'm pleased when the roads are clear.
To me it's the best of both worlds to have snow piled up in the trees and on the grass but for the asphalt to show through on the road.
It was also easy to keep plenty of food out for the birds because I could brush off the deck and garden ledges easily for my snowy weather feeding stations.
The bird in the shot above is on the swing ledge looking down at all the food on the deck ledge and deciding which seeds appeals to him.
I liked the way the snow landed on the ivy on the oak trees above.
I think the little bird below looks like he has made a little winter hut for warmth.
It was a short lived snow as the sun came out and starting warming up my world.

The last day of January was clear and that night I saw the moon rise through the trees and over snow topped roof.
A little later the moon was above the trees and shining like a beacon on the snowy world.
The next morning I managed to catch the moon setting while the sun rose.
I was amused by how the rooster in the weather vane looked like it was in the trees with the birds below.
As the sky got light the moon was easier and easier to photograph.
I like the way it looks with the moon over snow topped rooftops while setting, in a different way from the night rising shot.
I took so many different photographs because it was enchanting to me to capture the setting moon on the first day of February.
I find it easier to photograph the moon during the day time than at night because I don't have the right kind of camera equipment for night shots to be optimal.
That night I had another shot at the rising moon and I like the way it almost looks like a tree ornament.
