Is a White Valentines Eve the same as a white Christmas Eve? Well anyway, we had one!
An occasional visitor to our garden is the Chestnut-backed Chickadee (Poecile refescens)
The leaves of the Japanese Maple were hanging down heavy with the rain.
A Japanese Maple and a House Finch (Carpodacus mexicanus) both make for a pretty Autumn image.
I generally don’t let the weather dictate what I do. If we did that, we’d all be housebound and stir crazy! We have another rainy day here, but I let this Japanese Maple in our yard, brighten my day. The raindrops enhance the leaves. This tree is really full of all these pretty red leaves!
