Rainy days ...

Well the weather has surprised us once again ...
out come the hats and gloves and warm (rain) jackets.
Sitting at the kitchen table with my tea
I watched the happenings in our garden ...
lots of squirrels who happily discovered the nuts left out for them,
honey flower (our garden bunny) was enjoying her breakfast,
Mr & Mrs Cardinal were at the feeders
Chippy (our garden chipmunk) was at the window ledge with his morning finds of sunflower seeds
TONS of Robins ... more this Spring than I have remembered in other years
and Sparrows ♥
pitter patter of rain drops hitting the window

pops of colour
gentle cooing
~happy Tuesday~

What a wonderful way to spend some time, sitting with a cup of tea and watching the birds and wildlife. We seem to have more robins than usual this year too. Their songs are so pretty in the spring.

Love your nature pics and reading how you spoil all of those critters, Deb. I have such a problem here in my city house. If I hang feeders too close to the house I get mice eating up the seeds and shells and they always work themselves inside. Ugh. Too far away and I can never enjoy watching the birds. I also have house sparrows that crowd the feeders and leave it empty in a matter of hours. They are bold and scare away the other birds. Squirrels are also abundant and very bold..they 'bark' at my dogs!!

Well, I guess that's my dilemma. I'll enjoy your posts and see what this summer brings. Oh. tons of rain here, too. Good for the garden and grass! :)

Hello Elaine ~thanks so much for stopping by ~ hope you are having a wonderful week too ♥

Deb said...

hi Kristie ~ our garden has been filled with Robins ... and yes, they have the sweetest song ~ they say Spring (even when the weather doesn't) :-)

Deb said...

hi Andrea ~ the doves are so sweet and gentle and lovely to watch the two of them ♥

Deb said...

hi Jane ~ we've tried everything to keep the feeders for just the birds but the squirrels manage to get to them first :-) I get nervous watching them hang from the feeders ... seed falling below ... where the birds are waiting. they are pretty comical! rain has stopped here but it is cold (winter coat and hat weather). ♥
