Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone! Today dawned bright, with blue skies and cold temperatures. At around 3:00 PM I decided I needed a break from cleaning up the Christmas mess and went for a walk around the property. It was only 37 degrees and I was glad to be wearing my down-filled jacket. I went down to the big garden and filled up the bird feeder. Lots of bird action in the brush between the chick-a-dees and the jays. Everywhere I hiked, that was North facing or heavily shaded, still had remnants of the snow 2 nights ago. Although cold, I really love this weather. It is such a nice break from our normal grey Winter skies and endless drizzle.

It was a beautiful day in the valley... glad you were able to enjoy it! Our birds are busy here too, and I have been having to rotate the hummingbird feeders so they can thaw out overnight.

Happy New Year! Can you believe we will start thinking about seeds and preparing the garden in a few weeks? Time really does fly.
