February Snow - Mosaic Monday

I'm catching up on going through my photos and wanted to share some of February's snow with you. I know it is not like the snow many areas have had this winter - but it is a little unusual for the Pacific Northwest (Northwest Washington State to be exact).  We've had very mild winters for a couple years - and this year we got snow.
 Across the street from our house
 The neighbor's bamboo plants

 Neighbor's Tomato Cages
 The deer were feeding in the woods across the street.

 Some rain - and then lots of snow

 I had to thaw the hummingbird feeder and refill it so the poor little things could have some food during the snow storm.

Most of us are happy the snow has all melted.  Now we wait for spring.

Wonderful winter scenes and beautiful wildlife. Love the deer with snow on it's nose!
We've escaped the snow this year, it's been very mild in Normandy and spring is already here.
Thanks for joining me for MM this week.

JoAnn, The snow looks lovely. I expect it make life challenging though. I feel sorry for the hummingbird! You are so attentive to ensure they have food. I guess it goes with the responsibility of having a feeder. Thanks for sharing. Sylvia D.

Hello, pretty snowy scenes. I love the cute deer. It is amazing to see a hummer in the snow, I assume they appreciate having a feeder that is not frozen too. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the new week!

...snow can be magical.

That is amazing...and so very beautiful! We always stopped feeding the hummers in the winter months but this one definitely expects to be fed. Love those cute little deer! Hugs, Diane

Snow is beautiful, as your photos well show, but it's definitely time for spring! Yet we had frost overnight and some wet snow/rain throughout the day. Crazy weather.

This year our snow was only one small dusting. If we had that much, I would be too busy shovelling to take pictures.... no snow plows here.

Rose said...

We have not had enough snow for a good snowman...maybe one time. But not even sure of that.

Kay said...

Very pretty shots! You've had much more snow than we have at near sea level. Friends up higher here have all had much more - one, at 1500 ft., is almost ready to take a hair dryer out and start melting it. She's had enough!

Kim said...

Sublime photos of your snowy wonderland. Love the photos of the deer in the snow, just like a postcard. I wonder when Spring will reveal it's beauty in your li'l part of the world??

Mary said...

Love the deer looking backward with the snow on its nose!

Hope you get some more springlike weather soon JoAnn - I think that's enough snow for your area. Seems you got our share this year!

Hugs - Mary

It was a strange winter in Eugene too ... still is I guess... my daughter says they had a little snow yesterday for heavens sake! That is just not right! Usually I tell people we traveled south to escape rain not snow ... this year we could say snow just like people from everywhere else. Your pictures make it look lovely though (and in fact our family back home really didn't complain either).

If it were not for the hazardous driving in the snow I truly would not mind the snow at all. Just look at all of the beauty you have captured with your camera. I hope the hummingbirds all made it through the bad weather ok.
