I was inspired by our little skiff of snow to stitch up this little guy.

I do have several pictures to share for the Outdoor Wednesday Report.

Tuesday morning I awoke to a rime of icy snow.

Fortunately I'd filled all the bird feeders late Monday afternoon.
The doves came by first thing to eat. 

A bit later the California Quail dropped by.

The morning was grey, still and cold.

A little bunny came out of the brush to forage...

Closer and closer...

and closer still!

 The "formerly-feral" Tom-Cat had no desire to be outside.

He was wise enough to stay inside - warm and dry.

I agree with Tom-Cat. Best place to be and with lovely views :)

Your cute cat has the right idea. Lovely photos but I'm in sunny Florida so they look lovely to Thanksgiving.
