Reappearing



The freezing weather had taken a toll on the wild birds, there were days when not even a single bird visited the feeders. I can only hope our feathered friends, were hunkered down in their cozy nests keeping snug.

Several Christmas's ago, my husband gave me a gorgeous hand-painted piece of glass, featuring all native Tennessee birds, and a Morning Glory vine weaving it's way through an old weathered rail-fence.

Throughout cold winter months it's a perfect reminder of what beauty will soon be returning, when warmer days reappear.

All native Tennessee birds on that glass together with the Morning Glory. You husband gave you the most wonderful present I've ever seen.

Yes, please put the kettle on... I could just kill for a good cup of hot tea! It is freezing beyond belief up here in New Hampshire and the house being an old converted barn is also freezing inside! Here in the woods I don't see many birds in the winter and because we have a resident bear somewhere on our property putting out feeders just doesn't work (and makes me very sad).
Thank you for your kind words yesterday it was I believe about the loss of my kitty Raphael. You are very right about my heart being completely broken! He was one of those once in a lifetime kitties and he was in all honesty my best friend! I am one of those crazy animal people who seems to communicate much better with the animal side of life rather than the human, of course with a few exceptions. :D Anyway, it was very comforting to get your sweet words.
Hugs always filled with warm thoughts,

Jo, that is so beautiful! We've been hearing a lot on TV about the terrible ice storm in Tennessee which of course made me think about you.

From the looks of the weather hunker down there is more on the way. We have been feeding the birds and squirrels toasted bread,old apples, peels
and the apples we got on the sale table, sunflower seeds and crack corn. Boy do they love us.LOL

The glass with all the birds is such a special piece. Our birds tend to do strange things like that. The weather sometimes just makes them stay huddled somewhere. Stay warm and stay safe.

What a pretty thing to hang in your window!

Our birds were hunkered down in the trees and not at the feeders, too! Then today the sun is out and they are swarming the seed! I guess sometimes it's just too cold to venture out to eat!

They will be back. I am always amazed at the resilience of those tiny little creatures! Love that pretty glass. :-)

I know the poor birds have had it rough here this Winter too with blizzard after blizzard her in New England . I feed them righteously , some of the little brown wrens even come in the barn at night to keep out of the snow an have gotten quite tame. Thinking Spring already , I am.

Gorgeous piece of glass <3

That glass is absolutely gorgeous. Thankfully the birds should be surviving quite well here with no snow & hardly any frost. Hope yours are OK.
