Our Beautiful World

The prompt this week at Our Beautiful World is

Outside

It may be mid winter but there are a few things stirring in the garden outside... If you look closely, there are signs of new beginnings


Amid the remnants of Autumn, daffodil shoots are appearing...

And in the dull and drab coat that January wears, a little colour struggles to survive the cold and rain


Every morning I come outside to feed the birds and they wait patiently


Calling out when breakfast is served


I don't have a fancy camera... Just a little digital that I grab when I can and shoot on zoom through my window, and I was happy to at least get a shot of the new squirrel babies that use the trees as an outside playground


They are so quick! 


In a few weeks I'm hoping to see greener outside, daffodils swaying in the breeze and Spring on the horizon...

Share your photos with us this week at

Our Beautiful World

Have a lovely day

A bit grey today up in Scotland and no signs of life in my garden, so it was lovely to admire yours x Great pictures of the squirrels, you are lucky to catch them on camera. Thanks for sharing x

January and February are the long in between months before Spring,aren't they! I notice our blackbirds are pairing up already.
Enjoy your week!

Beautiful photos of the outside world! I see traces of spring with the daffodils that will soon appear! Awesome photos of the bird and squirrel, too! It looks like a spring day here in NW Ohio...temperatures anyways. No flowers trying to peek out yet. I would certainly welcome an early spring!:-)

So many amazing photos Ros! Do you know what kind of bird that is, quite striking isn't he! Of course, the squirrel photos have stolen the show for me today. How freaking adorable are they!! Think I will have to jump in on this theme, seems right up my alley! hugs :)

You make me want to go outside and take a closer look around the garden. These days I see nothing but deer ravage. Those primroses are so pretty!

I always love to see the photos of your garden. You have a talent to capture nature in a wonderful way. And that little squirrel is adorable. So cute!

Great pics Ros! I love your little squirrel! Hopefully you will see green soon! We always have plenty of sunshine but lately have had some rain so We are GREEN here in the desert :)

Greta said...

Always love your pictures, Ros! Just noticed new shoots in my neighbor's flower bed next to our mailbox! We have squirrels that look just like yours & they drive Fritz crazy on our walks! Good thing he's always on a leash!

Even though I live in California, but we are having snow since the last few days, since I live at a higher altitude! So, no stirrings outside for me yet:) Thanks for your comment for OBW.
Also, am inviting you to ALL SEASONS from Sunday through Wednesday evening 7pm, Pacific time, it's about any experience in the season (pleas do not use a photo that you use for OBW - thanks!) Hope to see you there!
