Sunday’s Sunshine. #36

Good morning everyone and Happy Sunday! Well, here we are beginning a new day. The temperature is not too bad at 16F (-9C) and not much wind which is very nice. That wind can really make a difference, making it feel much colder than it is. It is also cloudy again and a little snow is supposed to arrive beginning some time this morning. Then the temperature will get somewhat colder for a couple of days. The chickadees and nuthatches are busy, the blue jays have just arrived, late this morning for some reason.

Geraniums on my deck this past summer.

I have not seen any woodpeckers yet either. But I am sure that will change soon. There only seems to be 8 blue jays around these days, quite a drop from the 22 I had in the fall. A handful of evening grosbeaks has arrived now as well. There has been a couple of days I thought there was a junco around, I only heard it’s chipping sound however, but never saw it.

But yesterday morning there it was, feeding along with the other birds. Guess that one intends to try staying the winter. Not a good choice though, but if he stays around my feeders he has a good chance of making it through the winter. Hmm, there is about 20 evening grosbeaks out there now, so nice to see them and listen to their cheery chirping in the morning. I am enjoying watching out the window, drinking my coffee.

Peony in my landlord’s garden this past summer.

Muffin is sleeping here on the chair with me. She is sleeping, not me, I’m awake. Though sometimes I don’t feel like I am. Something must have scared the grosbeaks again, they are gone. But hopefully they will be back, though it does not seem to work that way lately. Oh well. Just a short post this morning, with some nice, bright pictures to share. Thank you for stopping by, have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thank you very much! Our winter season can last usually 6 or 7 months,πŸ₯Ά but sometimes it is short, only 5 months.😁 This year it looks like it will be a short winter because it started so late.πŸ€”
