Love Of Nature, Photography, Gardening And Country Valley Living

Wednesday, February 9, 2011


This little guy was watching me very closely as he stuffed his face full of sunflower seeds and peanuts, at least he was eating from his bowl and not the bird feeders, but rest assured he will start on the feeders as soon as his bowl is empty.




                                                Resting in the tree after filling his belly!

       I take it that we all have had enough of this winter, goodness knows I have. Spring is roughly 5 1/2 weeks away cant wait. My sign of spring is when the Robin comes back to us , he’s the one I look out for every spring. I love his chirp and his song early in the morning and in the evening as the sun sets , one of my favourite sounds of nature.

A  few photos of spring to help all of us get through these last weeks of winter.

There is a robin in the garden here, he is often around when I'm turning over the soil.

He's a busy little squirrel, we also have them digging in the flowerpots looking for those hidden nuts.
Love the Robin, and the hyacinth promises Spring to come....

We have had robins all winter.

I am certainly ready for spring.

Love these pics. Those little squirrels sure do fill their bellies. I would say he is lucky to have a good buffet put out for him too :)
