Fur Tree through a heavy Snow

image

I took this image about 15 Minutes ago – at 8:45AM.  The snow in the Peoria area is heavy and it’s been snowing like this since 6:30AM.  We were suppose to get one inch and we’ve had at least two already – probably get three or four.  I shoveled a walkway to the garage and you’d never know it to look at it.  The frosty look of the image is actually thick SNOW!

We had these in our garden two years ago and I just found the image in my archives.

Four Leaves on a Stone

image

My wife, Jean, found these four leaves laying beneath their tree – along the track behind our house in the fall of 2014.  She arranged them on the stone and took the image with her Nokia Phone.

New Guinea Impatiens

My wife grew these in our back yard a few summers ago.  They are annual plants and come in a few different colors.

Cardinals and Blue Jay enjoy Fresh Snow at the Feeders

image

We had a three inch snow on 2/26/2015.  These were some of the first birds to arrive at the Feeders.  We are expecting 3-6 more inches March 1, 2015. (All we need is another snow.)
