BABY IT'S COLD OUT THERE!
When I got up this morning it was a whopping 5° F out there and only got up to 16° F .
The birds were all fluffed up and anxiously waiting for me to fill the bird feeders ...
...The squirrels were ready to eat too :-/
I have three feeders on the deck and 3 suet holders.
So we have a lot of birds that visit us every day in the winter.
I also have two large feeders out in the yard that are there primarily to keep the squirrels off the deck. As you can see it doesn't always work.
They all make a huge mess on the deck and it drives the husband crazy... I figure we aren't using it in the winter anyhow and it cleans up quickly come summer. Then I take down the seed feeders and put up Humming Bird feeders. Hummers don't make a mess at all :)
However sometimes the squirrels do tip the hummer feeders and drink the syrup and make a sticky mess on the deck :(
The temps are already dropping now that the sun is going down so it's time to light a fire and think about dinner.
I haven't been online much lately ...just taking me time.
