Merry Merry Christmas

Winter is a time for comfort, for good and warmth,
for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk
beside the fire; it is the time for HOME.
Edith Sitwell

Here in the PA we woke up to rain and ice...
on the bushes, the trees, the pines, the road, the sidewalk
the car and everything that was left out over night.
Bad for travel but beautiful to behold.







A tree sculpture of a bear and cub...covered in ice.



a Beautiful sight...all covered in ice.

The birds did not seem to mind at all and look
quite beautiful alongside the icicles hanging
from the feeder

or perched atop an ice covered seed pod


The dove has ice balls on his back


And how does the Jay hold on to that icy hook?

What keeps the squirrel from sliding off the top of the church?


May you and Yours have a peaceful wonderful Christ filled Christmas.

We also had a covering of ice, but it warmed up and then rained all night and most of this morning. So the ice is gone. I have had birds all day and squirrels but not as many as in the past. Your photos are very nice.
