Scarves and Such

I've stitched all nine of the snowmen's scarves.  I think it looks rather pretty even without the snowmen.

The snow has long departed, and we are back to rainy, windy, typical-Oregon weather.  I did enjoy our little snowfall - so a couple more photos...

Lorane Highway from our mailbox.

Padma watched the finches and sparrows take shelter under the eaves.

A hummingbird waited out the weather under the Front Porch. 

Our Christmas garland looked festive with a light dusting of snow.

The Big Creek with snowy banks.

It looks so festive! We've barely had a hard frost this winter--it is almost like summer, in that while the daylight hours changed, the weather didn't change in temps to a big degree. I've been reading the weather reports for the NW & thinking of you!

You are right. It looks great even without the snowmen.
Your winter pics are looking great. I always enjoy your pics. You are a really gifted photographer

We've gotten a few inches up here in the mountains but nothing's stuck for too long. Beautiful images of your surroundings. (pouting again) I want Christmas to stay all the time. LOL The fence and the snow covers garland....(le sigh) ;)
The snowman scarves are pretty. I like the colors. Very nice complimenting cloth used too.

I like the scarves too!

You have hummingbirds year around? Wow, lucky you! Ours left back in September or October.

We're getting a little snow here now, too. Yuck! Your pictures are very nice, but I HATE WINTER! :-)

The photo of the hummingbird is adorable. He would make is good cross stitch motif all fluffed up into a ball.

You live is a beautiful part of the world.

The scarves are looking very cute! I love the picture of the highway - it looks to be a black and white photo, except you see the yellow sign - pretty cool!

I saw the picture and was trying to figure out what it was before I started reading! Nice and colorful scarves the snowmen will be wearing.

The dusting of snow looks so festive, just a few weeks late.

I can't believe the hummingbird still around. Don't they fly to warmer climes in the winter? A good question to research in my soon-to-be new hobby, birdwatching! Going to start by joining in on the GBBC, thanks to your sidebar link! Hugs!
