On a snowy day...

On a day like this... 

What is there better to do than this...

And my little garden friends?

There's nothing quite like that first crunch in a fresh, untouched layer of snow, and it seems I’m not the only one who takes pleasure in a snowy day. Mourning doves, chickadees, nut hatches, juncos—they are everywhere, dashing from tree to tree; from snow clump to snow clump.

Mourning doves; those permanent dwellers of the garden came wearing new puffed-up exuberant coats of feathers

Filling the garden with their magic, and in their flight bringing wishes of peace and the beauty of life, the warmth of the sun, the smile of a child, the love of a mother, the joy of a father, the togetherness of a family and the triumph of love.

It is the flight of winter and its magical song...

And it is like a fantasy kingdom of ice out there... It is like going through a magical doorway to find yourself stumbling into this enchanting place where every tree branch is an icicle beaming magic under fair rays of light…

Squirrels have gone mad attacking the birdfeeders and quarrelling among each other.  Four of them were feeding from one same feeder at one point!

Of course, snowy days are perfect for cocooning yourself in your favorite room with piles of colorful pillows and favorite books!

A time to fill your room with pretty things too!

And I don't know about you, but when it snows I feel this magical desire in me to bake!

So I baked an apple tart and ate it too!

With my favorite cup of coffee and a book to read.

Bad or good, these are some of my favorite things to do on a snowy day...  Do you have a favorite pastime you like to do on a cold, snowy day?  Whatever you do, or like to do, make sure you enjoy each moment of it, for that's all we have in life; moments.  Everything else is uncertain.
See you soon Friends!


  1. Beautiful, magical photos! And your apple tart looks absolutely delicious.

  2. I could feel the stillness and the magic of your beautiful birds. I loved this post... What a yummy-looking tart... I wish I had your recipe! I don't get to go outside much, but I stripped the sheers from my windows so I can see. I have a sweet pair of cardinals and some super sassy squirrels... Love, love.... Gayla Xx

  3. Dear Cielo, I always love to visit your world... love to read your minds. Theses two pictures with the flying dove are so amazing. Lightful blessings, Katya
