Love the photo and the poem!
It does look like a snow egg!
the words and photo are perfection… :~)
I look forward to that hatching.
A grand image of the season
Wonderful imaginative thought. It does look like a giant egg.
Something slightly different!
Lovely juxtaposition of image and words.
I love this one! It’s full of hope!

Hi Seedbud, I’ve reblogged this post. Thanks for visiting my blog, which has led me to yours. BTW how did you come across mine?
Hi Henrietta – thanks for sharing me with your readers. I found you in the wordpress reader. So glad I did.
Isn’t WP great. I was on blogger before October and as far as ‘meeting’ people and discovering blogs, it was a waste of time.
This photo and your prose blend together making the whole, a bright spot in my morning. Thank you.
My first thought when I looked at the photo was ‘wonder what’s going to hatch out of that!’ Then you answered my question…
“Snow Egg” … That is really lovely. I like this one very much!
words of beautiful promise.
wonderful to see and appreciate the simple beauty of the snow egg and to know what is coming…
This fills me with optimism! Lovely!
Beautiful photo and I love the anticipation of Spring in the future!
Very creative of you expressing what you feel inside.
Your observations of your world are truly wonderful.
Such a calm feeling when looking at this photo. Very peaceful.
This photo is cold and warm at the same time. Very hard to do. Nice!
Reblogged this on Voices and Visions.

Beautiful and thoughtful, as usual. Love your photos and your mind.
Nature at its best!

The chill of winter, but cozy and warm at the same time. Beautiful!

Thanks for visiting again and liking ‘Dreaming of Rain’.
Oops – I meant ‘Artistic Free Fall’!
The snow child emerges and is nurtured by the animal kingdom, grows spirituallly and is protected by crystals and the magic of nature.
Lovely Lavendermoongirl. Thank you for all your encouraging comments.
Wow. Picture and haiku really made for each other.
Very “pictureful” poem.

Thank you for your visit to my blog which has sent me here! I love the nest and your poetic words. Looking forward to visiting again!
Thanks for the visit to See How We Sew–your photos are wonderful.
So that’s where snowbirds come from!
a truly beautiful image and thought to match-
We have these in our trees too but very tiny hummingbird nests.
Trees have a beauty all their own and nature has such an impact on us.
Lovely! Reminds me of Andy Goldsworthy. —Jadi
A nice picture. Monochrome is great.
Hello Seedbud, thanks for visiting my blog again. Today, as I was driving along a back road, I was counting the bird nests visible in the willows and alders in the ditches. Each one was capped with a dome of snow much like the nest in your photograph. Incidentally, there were 18 nests in a 3 mile stretch which made me appreciate these shrubs even more.
Excellent Work. Thanks for the visit.
Thank you Seedbud for this beautiful and poignant image of Winter pregnancy. I feel encouraged that Spring will birth from the ground in crocus and daffodil soon enough… Thank you for your support of my Blog.
What a great picture! Thanks for sharing and visiting. Be blessed.
Lovely idea. Thanks for liking my blog.

so sweet! and a fun take on the theme of frosty…when the egg melts, what emerges?
seedbut, thanks for sharing your thought.
Wonderful pic! Thanks for visiting my blog!
I like the metaphor.
Great insight and imagery.
Like the picture and the thought. Thanks for visiting my blog!
oh, how lovely!
Very nicely done.
Lovely! I imagine a little snow robin might hatch!
Spring waits to hatch…
Life so fragile
Let it be soon, please!
Absolutely beautiful ~ your photo and your writing.
And thank you for visiting my blog!
What a great picture. Love your poem too.
Beautiful, your poem, too.
Beautiful! Can’t wait til our nests our occupied.
This is very cute photo. Who knew that a bird could lay a snowball hee hee
or you could just hard boil the snow egg
and devil it – eat your fill
and hibernate till spring in comfort
Hello, thank you for looking (and liking) my blog. I like your pictures, too, and I would like to “like” them also, but I didn’t find the button to do so. So I am leaving you this message. The idea of “Winter Hatch” is just great and stunning!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write. Sometimes there is a like button on the wordpress toolbar at the top left hand side of the page. But wordpress seems to hide it on some days!
This egg must be called “spring”
Wonderful photo and its description!
Beautiful photography on your site. Wonderfully, it matches my artistic sensibility although I do different types of things. Thanks for looking at my blog… I’m definitely following yours now!
Lovely! Well observed!
Wonderful feeling in this one!
Lovely, what a great find! Thank you!
Snowbirds vacate their summer homes and head to Florida for the winter. They’ll be returning home in the north country soon.
perfect composition–nice shot
Uh, its very cute! but Im thinking what about birds? Did they live their home before or there are insight something left?
