a wednesday walk ...

Good Morning ♥
Lots of sunshine ... but it is COLD.
Archer & I took a little walk around the yard to see if there was anything left to tidy up.
We will soon start decorating for the Holidays.
I thought the leaves in the frozen bird bath
looked like stained glass ♥
Can you spot the heart shaped leaf?
Once the leaves of the honeysuckle had all blown away, we were able to safely remove the nest the Robins had made.
It now sits on a bench on the front porch.
When cleaning up the garden for Winter
we leave anything that can provide food and/or shelter for the birds.
The berries are a favourite picking spot.
Our old wooden wheelbarrow has had all the Thanksgiving & Halloween decorations removed & is ready to be decorated for Christmas ...
There's
 a crack
in
everything.
That's
how
the light
gets
in.

Hello Archer and Deb!... love your photos... and I too think the leaves frozen in our birdbaths look so pretty... we have lots of berries and such for the birdies, besides all of our feeders... yesterday, we had 16 Quail eating in our back yard... Tessy was sooo excited looking out the window at them and pointing!... Nature is so beautiful any time of year... wishing you another beautiful day, xoxo Julie Marie and Tessy

I love that quote Deb! I also love that Archer!!! He is a beauty.
The frozen stained glass birdbath is almost to pretty to let thaw out. Isn't it great that even when things seem a little barren, beauty still finds a way to show itself to those who seek it?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend Deb!
