Hello everyone on this second day of the new year! Usually this time of year is very cold for us, but not so this year. It’s actually quite mild, cloudy and a little light snow falling gently. The first week of January is normally in the -30 to -40C range. So this is actually quite nice. It takes longer to freeze while standing outside trying to get pictures of the birds. I say “trying” because the birds are not cooperating much this winter. And for some reason these birds are camera shy. I can stand outside quite close to the feeders without my camera and the birds will come down readily. But, if I have my camera, even if I stand further away, they stay in the trees. I know why though, I’ll talk about that later.
For now, let’s take a look at some more bright and colorful flowers…
These are actually very large clusters of flowers more than a foot long (more than 30cm). And they grow on top of trees. Beautiful white flowers.
These are a bright flower that seems to change color, perhaps as it ages. There was a large hedge of them outside my hotel in Nice. So nice to dream of those warmer days when there is nothing but cold and snow outside. I hope you all have a great day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
