Well, I certainly got distracted today. For some reason, I thought I'd already written this post this morning! While fiddling with the computer to try and see things on my monitor without the magenta and neon green all over the place, I found I hadn't even uploaded the photos! So, here is today's very late … Continue reading Ginger baby update – a bit late!
We're just taking the bird feeder for a spin...
While in the dining room, I heard a familiar thumping noise from the living room window. The distinctive sound of a bird hitting the glass. 😦 I took a look and saw Junk Pile cat wandering by, so it looked like she had startled the birds. It took a while, but I eventually saw a … Continue reading Stunned
It's cold with blowing snow outside. What better time to prepare for this year's garden! I had been doing some research on how to grow luffa for some time, but it was just a few days ago that I found someone who had managed to grow luffa in zone 3. After reading this post, written … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: starting luffa

We have had a little snow, and the temperature as I write this is still at -11C/12F, with a wind chill of -21C/-6F. I've written before about the curious phenomenon of … Continue reading Ginger and the outside cats.
This is pretty much how the deer pick up the feed, all the time. They lick the seeds up out of the snow. Or off the ground, as the case may be...
This is how I found Ginger this morning. 🙂 The warming pad has been added to his favourite spot under the heater bulb, so the Ginger baby can be warm from above and below! When I finished putting getting food for the outside critters, he had come out, so I picked him up and sat … Continue reading Ginger baby update, and getting settled in
The other birds have been ignoring the suet feeder (will have to try another brand/"flavour", next time!), so it was good to see this downy woodpecker working at getting some, even as he was spinning in circles!
As we plan this year's garden, we are also looking towards the permanent, accessible garden beds we plan to make, both near the house, and in the outer yard. The satellite image I used to plan things out for this year's gardening was cropped from an image that included the outer yard and beyond. Looking … Continue reading Gardening beyond the inner yard: what do you think?
