First Snow of the Season
Our first snow of winter came yesterday at the end of days of rain. Starting in the evening and ending before morning, it left a thin, but heavy coating of slushy snow.
This charming birdhouse is waiting for nesters. Only a couple weeks ago, bluebirds were checking it out. Hopefully, they will return to nest. The grape vine wreath was made from trimmings of an overgrown grapevine in our yard. The wreath found a resting spot here after the holidays were over and it was stripped of the wilted greens that adorned it.
Eastern Toehee birds are regular visitors in our yard since we put out bird seed in the winter months. They have a distinctive call that sounds just like their name.
