I have to give a Shout Out to Corrine of dosfishes. She recently became my 100th follower. Besides having a very interesting and colorful blog, Corrine has one thing I would love to have here at my home in the mountains ~ a lake!! She has stories to tell about the birds and the fish at her lake. The above photo is a portion of a painting she did and it's a beauty. To see the entire piece, make a visit to her blog ~ you'll enjoy it!! http://dosfishes.blogspot.com
I took the birdbath in for the winter. It was a wedding gift from my DH's sister and I don't want to take any chances on the freezing weather damaging it. I put this sad looking plastic base from a planter out to replace it just in case the birds get thirsty. Sure enough, the blue birds were out today making good use of it.
The blue birds were busy at the bird house today. Every now and then I see them out there at the opening to the house, flapping their wings, going in and out of the house. I'm not sure what this ritual is all about. I would be interested to know. Whatever it means, they were doing it for quite some time late this morning.
