The Bird Tree

Sweet, sweet downtime.  Blankets of snow and cozy fires. Momentarily shaking off the urge to do, do, do and just slowing down.

Recovering from a year of upheaval and hard work and change, I’m using some of my current “free” time to update and recap what’s been happening on the farm.  But first a sweet faced pup and her human counterpart convinced me that it’s worth going outside, even when it’s dumping snow and 10 degrees out. I brought along the big camera for fun.

Slowly the ice and snow covers up the ponds

We moved our Christmas tree outside yesterday and it became the Bird Christmas tree. For several years we have set out the tree and added a few birds treats. This year, Penny’s current bird obsession had us working extra hard to make sure the birds were spoiled properly.  She is thrilled to watch all of our daily visitors and vows to restock the treats until spring.   I’m just praying this doesn’t attract even more mice!
