Monday in the Garden with the Cats and the Birds

About those Hummingbirds in the Snow

When I woke this morning it was 18 degrees outside. The snow was deep, dry and sparkly and the moon was still out. I was waiting for the day to fully dawn before putting the hummingbird feeders back outside. I knew they depended on… Continue Reading “About those Hummingbirds in the Snow”
