  1. The birds have been very active here -- thinking that we may get something -- they feed heavier when it's going to rain or something.

    1. There is suppose to be a chance in the weather coming tomorrow. Hang on to your hats!

  2. Missed your last post about the begonias and yours are doing great! I noticed some the other day in my area that were blooming which surprised me. I'm still learning so much about gardening in this area and I am still amazed at so many things. The Azaleas in my front yard are still blooming and nice and bright. My little Camellia in the backyard is in bloom as well.
    I saw a new pair of Bluebirds today so I'm hoping that we'll have another family this season.
    I love stopping in and seeing what you're planning on or what you have done in your garden.
    Have a wonderful week.

  3. Crikey! I can't believe you still have lettuces in the open, and doing so well. They are only available in the shops here now. We have to hang our bird feeders high as the cat's in the area see them as a meal, but the little fellows (the birds that is) are getting fatter by the day. We mostly get sparrows, finches, and blue and great tits, with the occasional pigion, magpie and squirrel thrown in.

    1. Our neighbor's cat likes to pretend she can get to the birds here. It's too funny.
      We have a squirrel too. The little clown of the garden.

  4. I always enjoy watching the birds more during the cold months when they are looking for their food.

  5. That's wonderful that you are still harvesting lettuce, hopefully that continues on for awhile.
    Love the birds, never enough bird posts!

  6. We had a frost last night and the birds are hitting my feeders quickly. I didn't think temperatures had anything to do about when the ate but it must. We have that same kind of mourning dove with the black band on the back. I think there is an Asian name that goes with it.

    1. I can't remember the Asian name either right now. I love how their feathers are pearly.

  7. Seems to be less activity at the feeders for us right now. The seeds, acorns, etc of nature are keeping them away. Within a month, I will hardly be able to keep up with the feeding of the finches though.....

  8. My birds have not been around lately. Maybe it was because I let the feeder go empty. LOL! I just remembered it yesterday. Poor things. I love your doves. Such great shots!

  10. YOu've got birds!!!!!! HOORAY!!! I've wanted to see them for awhile. That is a cool Mourning Dove...the collared I believe and lovely finches. Plus the Nighthawk up close from awhile back......very cool. As for the lettuce, it should be okay.

    1. I thought you'd appreciate the bird photos. Saw our first Junco today. Hmmm. Maybe the prediction of colder weather coming is true!

  11. Gorgeous! I keep buying squirrel proof bird feeders, but they outsmart me every time! So the search continues as I love to see the sweet little birds visit

  12. Lettuce from the garden is so creamy and full of life when you eat it.
    We do the bird count each year in February...its so much fun! What would gardens be without the little fellows

  13. We still have many birds at our feeders, but no fresh lettuce from the garden. I'm envious.

  14. I love all your birds especially the doves. Hope you have a great week and thanks for visiting.

  15. Doves are so sweet to watch and look so soft to touch. That lettuce looks great too! I didn't even get any planted:(

  16. The older I get the more I believe in simple pleasures and this short post is an ode to that,
    my dear.
