first snow

"The first snow is always a very delightful happening"
~Tasha Tudor~
Our first snow is always a delightful happening,
the air becomes very soft and still.
Our hills become pale ochre & white.
The birds seem to be coming from everywhere to find bits of rose hips to eat.
Even our old rooster pheasant, a solitary old man who we thought was gone, suddenly appeared in the old crab apple tree by the garden fence.
A comforting sight for me to see an old friend looking happy and content.

Oh Christine, how lovely. They are talking a warming trend here in the foothills. No chance for snow. but we usually don't see any till Christmas or later. But I love this picture of yours. Seem like just yesterday the deer were nipping at this very rose bush of yours. Is this the same one?

Smiles,
Becky
