IT'S COLD OUTSIDE!
Yikes! When I got up there was frost on the garage roof, which I can see from the house.
Every plant in the garden is deep brown, limp and hunkering down for a long winter's nap.
The birds are not really back yet. I only have blue jays, chickadees, and an occasional woodpecker and nuthatch. I will have to say though that this year I actually had a bright red, male cardinal. It's the first one I've had up here in New Hampshire. In Connecticut we had them ALL the time! I guess it's too cold up here in the north country. Maybe that says something about climate change as well. I must say, I enjoy cardinals...so I'll keep my eye out for his re-appearance!
