Small Pleasures

There's snow on the ground this morning. It follows a spate of weather that tried to fool us into thinking spring was here. From where I sit, I can see the cardinal who makes regular visits to our backyard bird feeder. He looks strikingly vibrant against the snow, and sits companionably on the fence with our other feathered visitors.

There's a slight wind tickling our wind chimes, and its bells mix with the birds' conversation.

In spite of the bitter cold, this struck me as a 'Singing in the Rain' moment.  Enjoy.

P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, whatever the view outside, I'm a sucker for this movie (and this scene in particular) and I'll look for any excuse to watch it. Schmaltzy? Maybe. Genius? Absolutely.
