Feburary First

It’s the first of February and Mother Nature is celebrating with a winter party. This morning she placed a frozen tablecloth with icicle fringe on tIce Tableclothhe patio table. She adorned the trees with crystal and spread a white welcome mat in front of my door.

Cardinals, chickadees, and nuthatches arrived quickly and helped themselves to the smorgasboard of seeds awaiting them in the wooden feeder.  A woodpecker in his black tux and red top hat arrived and strutted along the clothesline pole.

A strong breeze blew in and danced with the pine trees. They invited me to join in but I decided to sit by the fire instead.

    Good choice, Connie! And I love your word use. Your prose sounds like poetry.

    Connie–you’ve painted a wonderful word picture about winter here–nice! I especially like the image of the frozen tablecloth. But I agree, it’s pretty nice to take comfort by the fire!

    Welcome back to blogworld…we’ve missed your words 🙂
