I guess winter has arrived, at least for a little bit. Parts of Buffalo received 5 FEET of snow, but we were lucky. We got only about 18 inches of snow over the last day or so, and had to break out the snowblower for the last overnight arrival because it was so heavy and wet, and hey, we aren’t getting any younger!
With all the leaves down, we discovered the hummingbird nest in the maple tree.
Mr. Cardinal keeps watch up high in the tree to let us know he is around and hungry!
We have been feeding the birds and had to shovel a path to the feeders to keep up with our task. The red-bellied woodpecker arrived soon enough.
Not sure why they call it a red-bellied woodpecker when his head is the reddest part of him!
Here are some more images from the snowstorm.

I’m not sure I like this, but this white stuff signals the end of the gardening season for this year. Time to drain the hoses, and put up the shovels. Maybe start a fire in the woodstove, brew up a little hot chocolate, find some warm cozy socks and blanket . . . hmmm, maybe not so bad after all?
