Snow Tracks

We had snow today, and now it's pouring rain.  This afternoon, I expected to see lots of kitty paw prints in the snow, because Patty O'Malley never saw a snowstorm that he didn't like.

Instead of his prints, I found these:




Some little birdy mades tracks all over our front porch!  Wished I'd witnessed it happening in person, but it's kinda nifty that we found the evidence in the snow.

Patty and Sweetie came out for a early dinner, in the span of time between snow and rain, and that's when I snapped a few shots of the bank of periwinkles covered in snow, and some daffodils too.




The periwinkles come up on their own; I did not plant them, and they spread farther into the yard every year.  I like the natural feel of their presence.  The small daffodils were a gift from my family, planted after I helped Sammy over the Rainbow Bridge a couple of years ago.

  1. The flowers are so pretty in the snow, though I know they don't like snow. We have some periwinkle too. I don't know if it was planted by a previous owner or not. But we enjoy it every spring. We had snow flurries yesterday. Odd weather for Virginia in April!

  2. Such cute birdie foot prints :-)
    Though the flowers may not be happy about the snow, the scenery with them covered in white is very lovely!
    Have a great new week!

  8. We wonder what kind of bird made those tracks. The flowers are pretty...but we bet they don't like the snow.
