Tennessee Winters


Tennessee winters are very unpredictable. We go from warm to cold. From rain to snow. And back again. We even had fog the other morning. We finally got the snow that I've been waiting for. It's been snowing since Sunday. On and off. But because it's not all that cold, there really isn't much of an accumulation on the ground.
It's still pretty out here though. I really should go out with my camera and take a few photos. Yesterday I looked out the kitchen window and counted approximately 50 cardinals sitting in the maple tree and eating seed under the feeders. 50! An explosion of color in a black and white landscape. This picture was taken through the window screen, so it's not the best quality, but you get the idea.
Until next time.....

Whoa, that's a lot of cardinals!!
I've only been getting 5-6 at a time by our feeders and all they do is chase each other away from the seed :-)

We haven't had near this many. I couldn't believe it when I looked out. Ours seem to get along. They're too buisy running from our bossy mockingbird!

Oh my goodness! Those cardinals! What a magnificent sight. They remind me of my great-grandmother, she loved cardinals.

The snow really does look beautiful too...
