A Snowy Sunday

The weather outside is telling me it needs to be a lovely, lazy and  "stitchy" sort of day.
 
 
The furry folk are wearing a dusting of snow...
 
 
and
 our
 feathered folk friends
are in sort of  a feeding frenzy today...
 
 
 The birds had pretty good manners this snowy morning...
they waited their turn
and
didn't seem to mind sharing,
for the most part...
 
all
 but
the big red boy...

 
 he's spent his morning chasing off other big red boys...
he is territorial
and this is
 HIS
 buffet! 
 
 As you can see,
our ground is pretty barren,
an unusual site for mid January...
so the morning's dusting was somewhat welcome.
 
Can you spot the fat bunny?
 
 This boy comes out at night
 to feed on dropped bird seed.
   He just minds his own business,
quietly eating in solitude under the moonlight. 
He then can be seen for a short while
 in the early morning hours
 and
 then he disappears for the rest of the day.     
Isn't he nicely camouflaged
with this morning's
 snowy surroundings?
 
 
He looks well fed,
doesn't he?
 This morning I caught him do a little pruning nibbling on my Viburnum bush. 
{sigh} 
I'm okay with a little pruning,
 just hoping he doesn't get too carried away!
 
I hope you all are enjoying a relaxing Sunday afternoon. 
 The dh treated me to a late morning breakfast
 of
 griddle cakes and oven-baked Apple smoked bacon.
  Pot roast and veggies for an early dinner is the plan...
 I'm set to stitch the day away.
 
Have a good week everyone,
Brenda

Sure wish I could see a cardinal, would make the snow and cold worth it, sigh.....
Nice to have a day of stitching.....you always mention this bacon, I have never heard of it but it sounds delicious....although I haven't met a bacon I didn't like.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for the great photos!
Hugs,

Wow love the pictures. Thanks for sharing. I love the pictures of the cardinal and the bunny! In the NW we do not have cardinals so I am so envious. I do have a cherry and berry eating blue bird I would love to send to someone else!

Love all your photos !! You have a great eye !... those Cardinals can be a little , uh,,,grumpy. ..
Wow...Mr. Bunny is quite plump indeed !! Probably has a nice thick coat in preparation of the colder temps ?? It's going to get to 12 degrees for a high here next week...brrrrr..

I live in Ireland but am from the US, and I can't tell you how much I miss seeing cardinals. Thanks for the pictures!

At first I was looking at your blog (which I really like) from my phone. No, I couldn't see that bunny there. When I finally was able to get to my laptop...awwwww there he is, all gray and matching the winter surroundings! The birds are wonderful to see! Here in So CAl we don't have the Cardinals ...our loss!
Susan Branch has a lot of birds, and a squirrel, on her blog too right now. I love reading both of the blogs! Two very talented, fun ladies! Thanks Brenda.
