The image above was from 2 weeks ago, when we had a brief break in the cold weather that winter has brought our way.
Our youngest daughter Ashleigh, was running about with our oldest daughter Hillary's twin boys, Cullen and Kerrick~

Wild Bird Wednesday
It has been quite a while since a Fox Sparrow has paid a visit to Tingsgrove.
The last 2 winters, I have watched for them and then the other day, there were two. I have not seen them since, but here is hoping that they have not gone so far away, that they will not return for some more photo opportunities~
White-breasted Nuthatches, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, and Downy Woodpeckers, make frequent daily visits to the suet cake feeders I have placed in the side garden, just outside 3 windows, where I can easily sneak in some photography sessions with these fine feathered friends~
I love how the male Mallard Duck seemed to be saying...Hey, how are you doing and what goodies did you bring with you today... sort of looks like a smile, to me~
Not sure what kind of fruit was lingering on this tree, but it certainly looked lovely on this cold winter's day. We have been holding in the upper teens, and upper twenties all week. And below, spring buds already formed and ready~
My beloved Survhee Pipka, named because she survived so many obstacles 18 months ago. She is thriving and at times, seems more like dog, than cat.
She is nothing short of sweet and pure entertainment~
5 year old Meaka is such a happy dog and she and our 2 cats get along beautifully.
Meaka has about 6 weeks, if all goes as hoped for, to become a big sister to a new Long Coat German Shepherd, which we have decided to call Sylvie Aleit ~
The fog was so think last Saturday, that we could hear the boats on the Ohio River, but we could hardly see anything in front of us. I love fog and what it brings to the mystery in nature, but it can also be so dangerous, especially when you have fog and ice...not a good combination~
It is not very often that I think about it, yet, I know the reality of life... and one day, my husby and I shall be buried in a plot on a hill, where I stood to take these photographs.
It is a very special place, overlooking the military section of Cave Hill Cemetery, which is even listed on one of Louisville, Kentucky's best places to visit when touring the city.
A well known botanical garden, as well as much wildlife abounds within the high bricked walls of this place~
Below, frozen water reflections at one of the old walk bridges that crosses the creek on Tingsgrove~
This car was in front of us on one of the warmer days 2 weeks ago and I just had to get this capture of a St. Bernard enjoying an outing with it's master~
The sun was coming up and these Crows were getting excited as they began to move about at one of the hospital lamp posts in Louisville recently~
