Out My Studio Window and Around the House

Last week another storm added a new layer of snow to the valley.
Deer tracks in the snow. Food is getting harder to find.
The deer have taken all the apples they can reach from the trees. They are trimming the bushes near the house and visiting the bird feeders.
The temperature is rising this week. A hoarfrost on Wednesday melts as the sun hits it, raining down ice crystals.
The air is damp in the evenings creating pastel sunsets.

Yes, the deer are having a feast in our yard too. We are also having lovely sunsets like yours.

your winter photos are fantastic - thank you for posting them, for us in the south even though we had a lot of cold weather at the beginning of January we did not have much of any snow.

I'm jealous that we just get squirrels (and birds) at our birdfeeders.

Beautiful stained glass in your first photo!

Beautiful, even though I prefer the heat LOL.
Hope you are staying warm my friend.
