What is going on with our winter this year?
One day, 70, the next 25.
It's hard on the constitution.
These beautiful mosaics came here in the mail yesterday,
they are from our friends Ramona and Ronny Davis in
Mississippi. Ramona makes these as a hobby.
The garden one is going down by the door to the patio, where the garden is here.
The towel holder is going in the downstairs bathroom... I wanted an excuse to take down the "Barrel of Monkeys" shower curtain that was left up here when we bought the house, and now I have it!
They are beautiful, aren't they?
Thank you, friends.
This woodpecker was so happy to be eating the suet.
And he flew off with a big beak-full.
Look what I found in the henspa!
One bird has laid for the past five days... now another has kicked in!
I don't think it's any of these.
The face-off is still going on.
Rooster Cogburn will be living in the feed room for the duration.
Of course, his water was frozen this morning... so... I bought him a
heated dog water bowl to use... and then realized the only
extension cords out there were 50 footers. Tomorrow, I'll take one from here and get it plugged in.
He had warm water today, and it was still open this afternoon, when the dogs and I got there.
I put some warm water in his bowl... and tomorrow, he'll have a big bowl of
water that won't freeze. He also has a deep nest of straw and hay.
A Blue Jay visited.
And a little junco ruffled herself up to keep herself warm.
The bluebirds were cold, too.
As we were leaving, a cardinal came down.
Geese are still visiting all the bean and corn fields around here.
And I stopped to take their pictures on the way home.
I did not take the dogs this morning, it was just too cold at 11 degrees.
Three years ago today, Abby laid in a sunbeam at the old house. How I miss her!
