Snow has been falling since the wee hours of the morning. I think the forecast said it would end by midday but it only slowed for a bit and then kept coming! We have been waiting for the snow for a while and no doubt, will be tired of it before it all goes away. Ski trails are getting groomed and we will soon be out there with all the other snow lovers in the valley.

In addition to new snow, the Fed Ex driver (after getting stuck on our driveway) brought me a new camera! Not many things more fun than a new camera. Well, maybe a puppy but we are not looking for a puppy right now.

So I ventured out in the snow. Finches crowded the feeders and didn’t mind my presence. The dogs were not so sure about staying out too long, especially Luna. They were somewhat cooperative.


  1. Hi Teri, I always love your photos! Question re bird seed: do you use a different mix in the winter? The birds just have not been coming around & im not sure if it is the feeders or the food! Many thanks. Enjoy this winter wonderland! Best, frauke

    • Thanks Frauke. We use black oil sunflower seed and nyger seed in the yellow sock feeder. I also put out suet and a peanut butter/lard mixture that I spread on a piece of bark. Good luck. The snowstorm today really brought in a big finch flock! I was hoping for redpolls but they haven’t arrived at our house, yet.

    OK, Teri, what’s the New Camera this time?

    • Sony RX10 Mk IV – A camera to carry around while skiing and walking. It has a long zoom. A person always needs a new camera, right?
