Starlings feasting on crabapples ~ look closely there's a robin!

What a relaxing day.
I love snowdays, but do look forward to hearing from my children that they traveled safely to and from work, etc.

Amanda and I are lucky birds!
We had a cozy kind of day
Wishing you one too!
love,

Hooray for Picasa, the lovely red friend looks gorgeous amongst all the wonderful white. I do not use picasa or whatsoever, sometimes I wish I could find a little patience to dive into these amazing programs. I can add letters to my pictures using IPhoto on my Mac Book. Love love my Apple!
I'm wishing you many more cozy days, sweet friend.
Are these cute little cups in your side bar between your pictures, new? I just noticed these cuties. Soooo sweet, just like you.
Much love xxxxxx

Well didn't you create the most clever photo...it is beautiful! The snow is heading back our way once again. Right now we have mist and fog...snow starts tomorrow:(

I so wish we had birds like that, I love watching them! We just don't have many trees around here, I even put out bird feeders and they remain full!!! I loved all your pictures. ;D

Goodness, Maria - I love what you did with that photo on Picasa! Wouldn't it make a great notecard? You are blessed with birds.

Wanda..... said...

The photo you created looks very natural, Maria. Birds are fun to watch and add a lot of joy to the day.

Diana said...

I love snow days too Maria! I am hoping that we get one this week, ya never know. All of your birdie pictures were pretty. I agree with Wanda, the first one would make a very pretty note card! Love Di ♥

So nice to come here, sweet Maria! I am sorry for my absence! I have been working so hard, dear friend!
Your images are adorable and the red bird is pure JOY!
I hope you are all right!

There is something so fascinating about birds. I love to just sit and watch them come and go at the birdbath.
These pictures are just lovely Maria. Hope you really enjoyed your snow day!

Catherine said...

So many pretty photos here! It is snowy and cold here in Saskatchewan too. Cozy is a good choice for January! :)

Ciao Maria, all the best for 2011.
I am back at last catching up on all the posts I missed while I was away from computing while on an extended trip to the UK. I really missed my blogging buddies while I was absent from the blogsphere so have enjoyed catching up with your as always great selection of posts this afternoon. Some inspiring quotes and beautiful photography.

I woke up this morning to the sound of a bird chirping! First time since late fall and it made me SOOOO happy! I thought to myself, "Spring is on her way to me again!"

What amazing photos!!

Hey there sweet one...
Ahhhhh...birds are a magnificent creation. From the whirring of the tiniest humming bird wing, to the strength of a mighty eagle in flight.
...........perfection..............
Your bird snappies are beautiful...as are you...hugs, lots and lots of hugs...Rosie
