The only bird watching today is out the patio doors.
With the wind riffing through I just couldn't bring myself to sit on the patio despite the glorious sunshine
It is one of those times when your are thrilled to have snow cover for your garden. It has been incredibly cold here for some time. I think Ole Man Winter is making up for the past couple of warm winters.
The poor birds have it rough. They can't get to what little seed/feed is under the snow.
In our garden they have to contend with the grey squirrels. This morning we had 10 squirrels at our feeders. I guess they have to make a living too but 10 seems to be a few squirrels too many. Annie on the other hand thinks this is a perfect time to see if any of the squirrels want to play.
How disappointing. I came out to play and the squirrels took off. As did most of the birds despite the fact I don't chase birds.
I guess I will just lay down for a bit to see if anyone comes back.
Hmmmm, is someone up there?
Not up there but I think i know where one might be.
Yes! Helllloooo up there.
Would you pleeeese come down to play. I won't hurt you...on purpose.
Do you think I am crazy?
Pleeeeese, I promise to be gentle.
Nope. I am going to ignore you until you go away.
Well, I am not going anyplace soon. I will just wait until you decide to join me down here.
Wait....what was that? Oh Mom called me. See ya later.
Such is the saga that plays out in our garden over and over. You can see why I can't much to grow under this tree. Around and around they go.
Annie is difficult to get a picture of in the garden. She blends in with everything but with the snow cover it made it easier to take her picture, from afar. She also doesn't like her picture taken so I have to be sneaky.
On that note I will leave you with a bowl of sunshine on this cold Sunday morning.
Lemons from our Lemon tree. I hope you all are safe and warm.
*No squirrels were harmed during this saga.
