FFF ~ joys

Hi there! We’re counting our weekly blessings with Susanne and the gang at Living To Tell The Story.

1. First and best ~ love sweet love! An engagement in the family.

Our son Rob, and his beautiful bride to be, Dorothy!

Don’t they make a sweet couple? Love you both, to the moon and back!

2. Wintry wonder

So gorgeous.

I keep running out with my camera to catch the way the light falls.

It’s like living in a snow globe


3. Winter birds ~ I can’t tell you how much joy I have from watching these little visitors.

Black-capped chickadee

Listening to the little calls and chirruping –  makes my heart sing.

American goldfinch

Downy woodpecker3. We have a new visitor this winter – I think he might have come once before but this is the first time I’ve captured him in a photo.

A Northern Flicker  – a type of woodpecker but, as you can tell from comparing the pictures, he’s quite a bit bigger than the downy woodpecker.

Such handsome plumage!

4. Indoor joys ~ early morning light on a pink tulip.

I’d love to paint this – the texture and colour are such a delight. I have my watercolours out but I think I need a lesson or two. My camera does a much better job capturing this beauty.

Spent but still beautiful 🙂

5. And speaking of beauty~ Sarah – heading off to University!

It’s so lovely to have her back and to see that sweet, sweet smile every day!

A week filled with joy ~ thanks for coming to visit!

I have to scoot to an appointment but I’ll be by to see you later in the day.

Hope your weekend brims over with joy.

with love to you,

    Congratulations on the engagement in your family. They are a lovely couple. I was a MOB at our first time wedding in the fall and it was a lovely experience. Much happiness to you all. I am sending greetings from Ontario where we also have plenty of the lovely white stuff and it is beautiful.


  4. Congratulations to your son on his engagement and best wishes to his fiancee! Your photos of the snow almost make me wish I lived in a colder climate. Almost. They're beautiful! And oh, those wonderful winged friends! What a treasure!
