Gone South ?


The past couple of days have brought ice and snow to Middle Tennessee, part of the same Winter blast that has paralyzed much of the country.

I filled the bird feeders with fresh seed, and poured lukewarm water into the bird baths, hoping it will make life a little easier for all my feathered friends, here in the garden.

The bird feeder is now empty of it's " all you can eat buffet", the bird baths are once again frozen over, the only feathered "friends" I am left with, are the buzzards, who take to nightly roosting on the electric transmission towers.

Roll on Spring.........

Brrrr Josephine.. It's cold up here on the Cumberland Plateau also. And they are calling for flurries tomorrow and maybe more snow on Monday/Tuesday.

When did you say Spring was coming????? ha ha
Hugs,

I completely agree -- spring can't get here soon enough.

Mine were like that for a bit but then I had cardinals and junkos and the occasional squirrel. The coldest day I had four doves huddling on my porch under a little table in the corner. Poor little things. Come on spring!

Hope it warms up soon for you. When people here keep complaining about the cold I think about you all. It's been above freezing for most of the winter, probably not good for us though we need the cold to kill off the horrible bugs of all descriptions.

Sounds like you've been getting much the same weather as us, lots of ice and snow this week. Today though, it's been sunny and 66F, so it's pretty much all disappeared.
