In the summer our bird feeders are spread far and wide through out the yard and woods so that we can enjoy their presence no matter where we are working or strolling.
This winter, to make it easier for me to enjoy our wildlife, Sweet Hubby moved all the feeders and suet boxes onto the overhang of the porch. We are blessed daily by scores of birds….Juncos, Titmouse, Jenny Wrens, Cardinals, and both Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers.
I spent sometime yesterday snapping pictures of some Goldfinch playing in the bread bowl and snapping up strewn seed. As well as, watching Lucy watch the squirrel that was doing the same thing!
….just a walkin’ down the lane.
Singin’ ” do wa diddy diddy dum diddy do ”
I adore October!
Have a great weekend 🙂 Rosie
I know you will all relate to this to one degree or another. Do you have a set routine for your early morning?
For me, it’s letting the dog out, then feeding my menagerie of pets. While the coffee is brewing, I unload the dishwasher. Then, I sit down with the computer. Sometimes, I am good and disciplined and other times I need to call in “Super Chicken Timer”!
This sweet little timer was a gift from my new DIL this past year. I am sure she intended me to use it for cooking. What? But it is a perfect device to help me stay on track. If I need to only be on the computer for say 20 minutes. I set it for that and when Super Chicken dings, I close the laptop. Who knew?
I have been wanting to use this “toy” on my camera and this is the perfect opportunity….eventhough I am coming late to the party. Thanks to Sara at Sadie Olive for giving me a chance to play along in the “I Saw Red Challenge” ….. this was fun!
(The “toy” that I refer to is a setting on my camera that allows one to focus on a particular color and then just take random pictures of things with that color in them. The only thing that shows up is that color. I had to be shown 2 times how to use it before I remembered. Once by step son Ben and once by son Marty ….. they both have the patience of Job!)
p.s. Thanks to all who stopped by for brunch on the Front Porch! What a busy day of visiting with all my bloggy friends …… you guys are the best!
