white Christmas

Snow on Christmas day is rare here in central Kentucky. I am so glad it happened in a year I wasn't planning to go anywhere until Tuesday, possibly not even as far as the mailbox.

I hoped the tree would act as a blind, but it did not. The birds were still nervous of the camera:

The cardinal above is the only shot out of many tries that has a still bird, instead of blurry motion, or a bird just out of frame when the shutter clicked.

Isn't it charming how the snow stopped neatly at the edge of the porch?

No footprints, especially not mine!


  1. Pretty when it's all fresh like that.. especially if it's rare. Love that last shot.

  2. Thanks, Hilary. I love the way my porches frame things.
