It's been fun looking back and seeing some of the sights we've seen and the places we've been. I am not a big fan of Winter, nope, not a little, but living in Michigan avoiding it isn't an option. Snow and ice is just a reality. Instead of just putting up with it, staying inside and hibernating, husband and I decided we were going to get out and about and try to see some beauty. I can't believe we're almost through it! Winter seemed so long (we always say that lol).
I'm still working on my cross stitch and knitting. Once again I've been distracted by the birds (and squirrels) visiting the feeder in the back garden. So many 'new' birds visiting! It must be the ones that left for the winter returning. I am going to have to find a way to keep the squirrels off the feeders. They are eating everything in sight! Hubby saw something about using a slinky on the post. Might try it. The darn things (though really funny to watch) are driving me crazy.
After attacking the suet feeder they are now climbing on this one and sticking their hands in the holes. Sigh.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
Your winter album is a lovely idea! The squirrels say, "Can't let all these yummy seeds go to the birds!" :DReplyDelete
I think you're probably right lolDelete
I've been watching your amazing photos on instagram - beautiful. Even though those little tree rats are a bother - you took some cute pictures of them....LOLReplyDelete
Thank you so much! I must admit I do find them funny to watch.Delete
Our winter has seemed very long too although nowhere near as cold and snowy as yours and it's going to be cold again for Easter, I gather.ReplyDelete
It does seem to be dragging on, doesn't it? Mum said it was supposed to be a lousy holiday weekend. Hope it warms up soon!Delete
The slinkies do work but there is a BUT! I put one on my feeder pole and they can't climb up it any more but the little boogers jump from the ground and grab onto the bottom of the feeder, which incidentally is supposed to be squirrel proof. So if you use a slinky make sure the pole is quite long and the feeder is a good ways from the ground.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tips! Doing more research it doesn't sound quite as successful as I'd hoped. I think we might have to work out something else.Delete
