The birds wanted food this morning. The male downy woodpecker was sitting on the feeder even though I was within arm's length of him. He is a real brave little fella. The picture is through my kitchen window and poor photography, but it gives you an idea of "the view" that I see so often.

Today was our day to have the frosted coating on everything is sight including the animals. It is very uplifting since even the ugly things take on their own form of beauty. And....we can use some beauty at this time of year in Wisconsin. (Yes, Beth, we finally got it up here; it just took a while.)

The Christmas wreath still looks fine with its snow and frost decoration.

The old elm trees out by the road were beautiful probably for the last time since they have succumbed to Dutch elm disease and will become fire wood soon.

Even the boys and the woven wire of the fence had a decoration of frost.

What a beautiful winter wonderland! I envy your snow. We don't get much here in TN. It is sad that the tree will not be there much longer.
