Frozen



Today our world seemed as though 
all was frozen after a bad winter storm. 
There was not much snow,
but the the ice whispered upon the earth.
Welcome to our yard in winter.








But the cardinals braved the cold...


...and so did my husband!


Stay warm, my friends!

Today I am linking to 
Wen's Simply Neutrals Tuesday Party
(even though today is Saturday!).
Why don't you pop over there and say hello
to some of my other friends!
You can find Wen's blog here.

All of the photos in this post were taken with my 
oldie-but-goodie Canon Rebel T1i
practicing for the first time
 taking close-ups with a 
Canon EFS 55-250 mm zoom lens.

    1. Thanks, Gaby! Next week it's supposed to get up in to the 60's so I can only dream. Yesterday it warmed up a little so a lot of the ice melted, but we still have a ways to go. Stay dry! XO

    1. Trust me when I say you wouldn't have to go far to meet my limited camera skills! That bike is an old one that I painted many years ago and use as garden art (if you want to call it that!). I'm waiting for the hostiles, i.e. Homeowners Board people, to accuse us of trashing our yard! Have a great week!
