Happy New Year 2013

I want to wish everyone a HEALTHY and HAPPY New years!

 I am linking up with Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday.



I believe we will spend our New Year's Eve at home. A quiet evening at home is more my style, I do not like crowds of people and I am not sure about the weather for New Years Eve night.


Above,  I have my pretty Pine Warbler, Goldie Girl on our walk, the woods next to my house, Goldfinches on the sunflower seed feeder, the pine trees on the side on my yard, a Cardinal, a Brown-headed Cowbird and the Pine Warbler with two Pine Siskins.


The large pine trees on the side on my yard offer the birds a safe spot protected from the snow. 





The last two days have been quite different, Saturday was a snowing day. I had fun watching the birds coming and going thru the snow to my feeders. Today is cold and windy but hubby, Goldie Girl and I managed to get out and take a walk on the fireroad.


My pretty Pine Warbler made it thru the snow and was back on my deck this morning.

Again, I wish everyone all the best in 2013! I am looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing new posts in the year 2013. Happy New Year! 

To see more wonderful photos and mosaics please visit Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday
 Thanks to Mary of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia and Sandy .  Thanks also for stopping by to see my post.  I wish everyone a happy week!

Such beautiful photos Eileen! I love the first photo seeing the Gloldfinces on the feeder. Such a pop of yellow in the snow scene. What a lovely friend to take a walk with you.
We will probably have dinner out and a quiet evening at home with family.
All the best to you and yours in the New Year.

Enjoy your New Year's Eve at home. We're undecided as of yet, but it's leaning to a night at home as well.

These bird friends of yours are captured so beautifully. It's wonderful to see their vivid colors against the snow.

Hello Eileen
I like the sunflower feeder; lots of birds can hold on at once. What a stunning photo of the pine warbler.
Can't forget your Goldie Girl - she's a loveable looking dog.
Happy New Year.

I think a cardinal in winter is such a pretty sight, so bright against the snow. You take great photos of the birds you see.

We'll be staying home for New Year's Eve as well - cozy by the fire.

Forgot to say, Happy New Year, Eileen.
