Birdy it's cold outside!

Just as my garden was thinking Spring had arrived early we woke up to a winter wonderland this morning!  I know snow can bring so many problems for travel, but it always feel special to me, so a warm cup of Tea and then straight outside, all wrapped up,  to play with my camera... and give my garden birds some extra food!  I always smile at the little snow hats that appear on the seed heads, always makes me feel glad I have not chopped them down in a mass clear out like so many sadly do, stripping their garden bare for the winter!

I must stop playing in the snow and get back to my orders, lots of Bumpkin Parties coming up around the world!  But first I can't leave without sharing some of my (shhh 100!) photos.

Robin, fluffed up like a little balloon!

Special Valentines Treats coming up!
Warm Hugs

Your pictures are beautiful! I leave my seed heads too... they are a large source of food for the wildlife in the winter months! And your Robin all fluffed up is so Adorable!! He is Waaaayy cuter than our American Robin! I love to photograph the Garden in snow too... it really creates a Magical environment!

Gorgeous pictures! That little robin is just too adorable!
I wish we would get some snow at our house just for a few days so the kids can play. So far it's just been rain all week long. :/

Thank you for this beautiful garden tour. We have plenty of cold, but little hope of seeing a snowy wonderland like yours.

The birds were being such good models for you! I've been trying to take pictures of my feeder birds lately, but they're too shy.

Spring will be here soon, snow or no snow!
