Snow fallen on frozen water, gives more other beauty.

ice bubbles




ice-bubbles in the birdbath.
The water is half-frozen & half-melted,

Somehow these beautiful bubbles have formed in the ice-water.

bibi's tail


Bibi's tail gets extremely thick and funny, when she is excited, afraid
or when chasing her mice.

all fluff & hair is rising straight up on end.

Bibi run-away-cat

This morning in a unexpected, unguarded, unthinking moment, Bibi escaped.
She managed to open the door, while I thought it was firmly closed.
Not so...! Immediatly she took her chance, and was gone in an instant.
Enjoying life to undiscovered territory.(she had not been outside alone, since I have her)
Me, undressed yet, early still sleepy, with my cup of coffee, had no chance to follow, so had to let go.
Later while dressed...looking...calling....no Bibi anywhere..all gone...
Looked everywhere around the house, but failed to see any glimpse of something that looked like cat.

Then, about one hour later...unexpectedly ...
there she sat..right in front of my door...
waiting.......

mine-field


Same time as the snowdrops dropped their spears...
my grass is devellopping like a mine-field.

Cannot walk the grass without looking carefully where I put my feet...
everywhere there are little beginnings of crocus...
piercing the ground and even leaves.
oh I so love this time of new beginnings!.!!!!!!!!

snow-spears dropped


About a 2 weeks ago I pictured the same plant of snowdrops.

At that time the snowdrops were more like snowspears...
as they mature they drop their weaponry against the cold and frost...
and now unfolding relaxing and letting go, showing off their beauty and purity, they announce that spring is definitely coming.

snowmouse 2


snowmouse




Yesterday I, or better say Bibi, got from one of my friends K. a great present... which she had bought on her trip to Denmark last week.
A real danish snowmouse! with red eyes and red nose...
Which cat has such a toy!..its a tumble-wobble-mouse, and Bibi is highly interested in what that might be.!

yellow stripe

The golden crested wren came along to have a bath today.
His yellow headstripe clearly showing off.
The yellow stripe gets wider when he takes a bath, and a bit undone.
Normal featherhairdress is only a small stripe, & perfectly straight.

robin couple


There are definitly 2 robins in my garden... I saw them this morning together.
When you see all the time one flying, you cannot tell which one is who, and who is which, cause they look both the same.
Tried to put them for the lense, and to my amazement they did & there is clearly proof!

one has a ring..the other has n't!
Only hard to tell, which one is the lady and which one the mister!
