Happy New Year!


This postcard was sent to my maternal grandfather as a child.

I wish you all a most Happy new Year! 


Brrrrr! We are supposed to have a snow shower or two today.

Not the best hummingbird weather.

Any time it gets below freezing, I bring the feeders in a night.

I put them back outside at first light (by 7:15am).

If it stays well below freezing during the day, I'll rotate them out every couple of hours, so the birds always have a source of energy available. 

You have to admire a little bird who can survive low temperatures of 10F or below. 

I do my part to help them survive the winter weather.

Happy New Year! So nice that the Post Card was saved and is still being enjoyed. Those are some happy little hummers to be so well taken care of.

Happy New Year, Beth. The bird pictures are amazing.The little water droplets on it's beak and tail ....such detail that we normally don't see. I love taking care of the birds on Winter.....they give us such sweet song and peace.

I am worried about all the bird and animal life. It is suppose to be the coldest in several years! It is amazing how adaptable they are. We do our best with feeders to help them a bit.
