I'm dreaming of spring
while we wait out a prediction of nine straight days of snow ahead. Good Grief...
Our grandittle, Gwynn,
had some fun with the tiny country cottage cluttered china cupboard yesterday.
It road around in a wooden wagon pulled by a plastic goat.
Then we made a Valentine card for her dad which she promptly hid in a bag so daddy wouldn't see it.
She had lots of fun and went home with banana pecan muffins and a big jar of seed for her birds.
Annie was thinking ..."why, oh why, are small people so quick and unpredictable?"
I prepared the feeders today for the next few days as I expect we will have lots of birds here.
NINE DAYS OF SNOW!
Our neighbours are still away and the birds that would normally feast in their yard will be here, I'm sure.
I have hung commercial suet as I have gone through the home-made batch.
It's on my 'to do' list, though.
The chickadees are so friendly
as they gather around and watch me fill the platform tray and feeder.
They're very chatty.
And rather demanding. lol
We'll be seeing wood-peckers, nuthatch, juncos, blue-jays, chickadees, mourning doves, cardinals (male and female), sparrows and crows.
No hawks, I hope. :-[
There's lots for you too, Red.
This tree is right behind our most popular feeders so that is where many of the birds and Red go for shelter.
And a dozen or so squirrels.
I do hope they get through the next few days and are still here to tell the 'tail'.
