February snow 2014




Another view




And a third. I hope these are the last snow pictures I take this year! The bird feeder--where the action is.




Snow sculpture. I had nothing to do with the making of this. The snow and the wind did that.




Front yard in snow




Cosmos. Such a lovely, old-fashioned flower!




Lavender. Don't you just love lavender!




Maple hydrangea taken from the deck. I don't really like this kind. The flowers blosson one at a time instead of all at once, thus this plant doesn't have that lovely snowball effect




Daylilies in the front yard




Azalea at the side of the house




Chives on the other side of the house




White columbine in the side yard




purple columbine nearby




Japanese maple in the front yard




Lilies of the valley nearby in the front yard

It occurs to me that I never take pictures just of the woods.








I just love mushrooms!










































Have I ever mentioned that I love daffodils?




These forsythia are brand new and I couldn't be more pleased with them!
















OH YEAH! It's daffodil season again! YAY!




Don't you just love crocus?




And pussy willow turning green already!

Campanula




Looks like our stray cat has competition for his food!





This is stray cat. He came to us Mother's Day weekend and has stuck around ever since. He has feline leukemia, so I can't take him in. But I do have him set up in the garage with food, toys, a litter box, and several soft places to sleep. Mostly, though, he likes being outside. That's fine in the summer, not so great in the winter. I'm hoping to find him a loving family before the cold weather sets in. My vet says he will probably live a perfectly normal life. But he can't be with other cats. So there it is.
