Snow day!

 

icy cardinal at feeder

The birds still have to eat

Today it’s good to be a teacher, but not that great to be a bird. While I sit inside warm and dry the birds are stuck shaking off icy mess and trying to find a bite to eat. Hopefully the feeder helps make it a little easier on them.

One other bad thing about this weather is it gives you the time to look at all the new seed catalogs that have shown up in the mailbox. Over the last couple days I’ve put together maybe orders for roses, dahlias, lilies, apples, dwarf conifers….. hopefully all of them will be forgotten once the real orders take shape and the days get longer. Except of course the lilies, I don’t have many and sticking in a bulb or two here and there doesn’t barely count as a new plant.
