Winter's Song plays on

Making days count 57

The snow remains and so does the cold weather. It's below freezing, and is 5 - 10 degrees colder than is usual for this time of the year.

Although hardy, my Hellebore 'Winter's Song' is feeling the effects.


The daffodils, thinking that their timing was right, are now stunned and frozen in time.


Not many birds are frequenting the feeders, but the odd one shows up. I have learned more about the Dark-eyed Junco from this site.


Although the weather forecast shows the temps rising from this -8C we've been experiencing, it's still cold!!!

Rain and Snow
2°C | -3°C
1°C | -4°C
Snow Showers
0°C | -1°C

So...I whipped up some pizza dough, searched through the fridge and cupboards, and whomped up a pizza!



  1. Nothing can beat a home-made pizza to warm the cockles of one's heart! Seems like you're a great cook Glo. x

  2. No snow here but we did get caught in a hail shower on our afternoon walk. The weather conditions do change very rapidly these days.

  3. Brrr! Been mostly wet here over the weekend so daffodils here are just soggy! Flighty xx

  4. Hi Glo, I've just caught up with your posts from the last week.

    Do you have to keep showing me your delicious food ;) I've decided that it doesn't make any difference whether I have already eaten or not, you ALWAYS make me feel hungry!! That pizza looks wonderful :)

    My goodness, you are having some Wintry weather! We have had colder temperatures again recently and quite a lot of rain :(

    I still find it difficult to believe you have that beautiful majestic mountain scenery to look at on a regular basis, just amazing!!!

    Thank you very much for the mention and link in the earlier post, so kind of you :)

    I enjoyed the video of the Dark-eyed Juncos eating at your feeders in the snow, poor birds, I do worry about them all in bad weather.

    I hope Harzel is coping with the snow, I'm sure he will be glad when Spring arrives too ;)

  5. Hi Louise ~ good to see you :) Yes, the pizza did the trick after a snowy day. I do enjoy cooking and baking, but I'm glad I don't have to do as much as I used to!

    Hi John ~ Not pleasant to get hailed on! Crazy weather everywhere, I think, you're right. Warm, dry weather will be appreciated by us all.

    Hi Flighty ~ Brr is right! Enough with this weather ~ soggy daffodils don't sound like happy flowers, either!

    Hi ShySongbird ~ Thanks for catching up with me :) I thought I'd better put some food on my site along with the birds and walks to keep their strength up :)

    The weather is much colder than usual, and more snow may still be coming during the next week or two. Not needed at all. Rain is washing some of it away, so can relate to your rainy weather as well.

    Yes, it is a lovely location with mountains, sea, forests and usually decent weather!

    The Dark-eyed Juncos are at the feeders more frequently than the other birds during this cold weather. I'm always surprised to see the little ones still fluttering around even with the cold.
    Harzel is doing fine, but I really want to see if it flourishes once the warm weather comes.

    You're more than welcome for the link. :)

  6. thanks for the link about the junco, what a nice little bird! We don't get them over in Scotland!

    Your pizza looks very tasty!
