In the garden ...

It's raining at the moment
but snow is on it's way ...
Lots of action in the garden ...
Little ones wait patiently in the morning...
Everyone has their own special spot...
This looks like a great "look out" area ...
Peanuts have been bought
We are all ready for tomorrow's hungry crew :-)
this is an older photo ... but one that makes me smile every time I look at it :-)
The Robins had nested here (when our gazebo is covered in lush Honeysuckle vine you can hardly see that anyone is nesting ... but it's become such a popular spot in our garden that we automatically look here now ) and this little cutie decided that it was a good hiding spot for a few peanuts.

Lovely photos , looks like our squirrel speedy that loves to tease our Miggs lol ! It is a rain snow mix here right now and we still have no snow on the ground as the ground is now warm and it just melts the snow as soon as it hits so far . Thanks for sharing , have a good week !

hi Elaine ~ same weather here ... trying hard to snow.
speedy is an adorable name for a squirrel :-) ... he must be keeping sweet Miggs fit! Have a great day ♥

Deb said...

hi Jane ~ ours are so tame I am afraid they will walk into the kitchen sometimes :-) they actually stare into our window while we are at the kitchen table & Archer doesn't bother with them in the least ♥

Deb said...

thank you Julie Marie ~ we got a little bit of snow ... anything is better than nothing :-)One of the things I love about freshly fallen snow is spotting little bunny tracks on the deck which is what I found this morning ♥
