A Good Purchase

Nearly 22 years ago hubby and I bought this bird feeder. It was probably one of the first "non necessities" we purchased together - we were so poor back then!!! It proved to be a good investment though - it's still around and in fact it has hung in this very same spot for over 18 years!!!

I don't fill it now as I feel badly about luring sweet finches, juncos and chickadees to my yard only to have the kitty cat chase them - someday I will be catless and I will fill it again. In the mean-time I love looking at that rustic bird feeder hanging in my pie cherry tree.

I love the collection of mosses and lichens that now adorn the roof!!
It's like a little world all in it's own!! God is so creative!!!! And yes - the winter rains did return to our neck of the woods - but my little daffs are blooming away!!
Spring is on it's way!!

I love looking at the mosses and algae and fungi!! Have you ever heard that silly saying "Al-gae, you're a Fun-gi, I Lich-en you"? I sue to say it ALOT!! Too funny!

Your daffodils are simply divine!!
I need some color around here! We're still all brown from the like 3-4 freezes we have had. Hmmph!

Hope your week is going well! Tell the kids hi from Florida!!
Love ya,

My daffodils have come up, but haven't bloomed yet, I even saw some crocus' blooming in my pasture, maybe spring will be here soon.

I love seeing your spring- thanks for sharing! I was proud to get the last of the snow off of our back deck today~ never mind that it's still piled high all over the ground. =) Please keep your spring pictures coming.

Put several rabies tags on your cat--and a bell. Birds always heard my cat coming and he never got a single one.

Neighbor children called him Jingle.
