With all the busyness that surrounds the holidays, I seem to have lost my blogging momentum. But I thought I could at least share a few pictures from our backyard.
Starlings enjoying a feast of crab apples
Digging a hiding place in the snow for a future snack
Patting the snow down to cover the hiding place
And searching for more treasures to bury
When we bought this house, almost 24 years ago, there was only one oak and one maple in the backyard. Wanting more privacy, we lined the perimeter of the backyard with trees and shrubs. It has given us so much enjoyment to watch all the birds, rabbits, and squirrels that have found shelter and food in our "privacy fence."
