Sunday Mornin' Snow Comin' Down

Waking up to a snow-coated landscape with yet more flakes drifting down from a cloud-heavy sky is the best of winter in Prairie Country. Birds swoop in to snatch the sunflower and safflower and thistle seeds, looking over their shoulders in the blue light, wary of their neighbors. And their neighbors' cats.

We have a few new neighbors of late...cardinals moved up from the Minneapolis area. They're welcome in our back yard. But their arrival signals the loss of neighbors we always treasured...the grosbeaks with their vivid yellow coats are rare sightings these years.

Here in Prairie Country, we watch time pass season by season. With that passage comes change, new neighbors, new immigrants to Prairie Country. We look forward to the best those changes have to offer. And on this snowy Sunday morning, we're making our own change...ta-da, we've added picture! Enjoy.
