I do believe winter has arrived.......

Mt Eddy December 18, 2014   8:31 am

I know the official date for winter is December 21st
 and yet.....doesn't this look like winter?
I took this photo earlier today. It's cold and windy,
but NOT raining or snowing so I walked around
our 10.5 acres to see what I could see. 
Lots of little Goldfinches, Steller's jays,
Black-capped chickadees, White-breasted  Nuthatches and Juncos. No California Gray squirrels to be seen...
I think they are taking a nap. 
We can see Mount Shasta and Mount Eddy from our property.
Mount Eddy is my favorite. It is the highest summit
in the Trinity Alps which are part of the Klamath mountains.

Have a great day!


  1. Now this is one fascinating and beautiful of all photos! Nice capture!

  2. What a lovely shot. Yes, winter is in the air. Here too. The sun is out today, but it's back to rain tomorrow and we're good with that.

    Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Lucy. ♥♥♥

  3. Great shot! The flog/clouds frame it nicely.

  4. You picture is beautiful but makes me want to bundle up in a thick sweater. I didn't know your property was so large.

  5. The weather ignores the calendar, it really is looking wintry, so call it winter!

  6. It's a beautiful shot, but I must be honest that most Floridians think this is way too cold. It's great in theory, but not in practice.


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page.
