Birds , Critters & Blooms


  It has been cold here but the sun is shining , still no sign of snow for us . We seem to have fewer birdies this year with no snow but the ones that we do have visiting the feeders  I love watching .

    This little guy on the other side of the tree was chowing down as fast as he could  I burrowed a hole in the inside of the log and put seed in for them !

      Miggs and I went for a nice walk as the winds were calm and the sun was shining . When I came in I saw that I had a few indoor blooms , always nice to have indoor blooms in the colder months makes it just that bit easier  to get through them .

It's a lovely sunny day here. We had a dusting of snow overnight but not enough to hang around during the day. I'm already thinking gardening ... planning a new herb garden. I've been eating some salad to combat the Christmas pounds and those lovely clear, rectangular containers will be great for starting some seeds in. Hopefully the dollar stores will start having garden things to look at soon ... they already have Valentine stuff!

From the looks of things, I'd say there is a bit more winter yet before you can do any gardening. It's even been cold in Texas, well cold for us at 32 degrees. But tomorrow we are back up in the 60s!

Your squirrel shots are wonderful, they show the true cheeky characters that they are !
Happy New Year to you both, I hope it's filled with good health, prosperity and most of all peace.

Plenty of the white stuff are welcome to come and get some anytime!

I have lots of snow I would love to share with you from this past week. Happy New Year's to you & yours Elaine!

Jen Vandervoort said...

Well, no snow...that's astounding! I'll send you some of my 18n + inches with more to come. Don't worry we have plenty to share...

Lovely to have had that time with Papa before he had to go back to work. You started my day off great with these pretty photos. Thanks Elaine and Happy New Year to you all.

Gosh it seems so odd to see green grass on your posts at this time of year after all that snow last year. The Juncos still look very happy though! xx

Enjoyed your critter visitors. Lovely blooms from your African violet and geranium. Thanks for sharing he sun shining at your home.

Isn't it funny to see green grass at this time of year! The days are never the same two days in a row, which makes for plenty of surprises. Your blooms are pretty; I took in couple of geraniums so will have to see if they bloom for me. Thanks so much for coming back to ☀Sunlit Sunday this season.

Beautiful sunshiny shots!

Lovely sunny shots and a fun squirrel to watch. Winter offers a real buffet of weather, doesn't it?

I'm getting ready to plan my garden too. The seed catalog arrived just before Christmas but I haven't had a chance to really go threw it yet. Better get started as I can usually plant the first outdoor greens in March.

Lovely indoor blooms soaking up the sun.
