While they don't come around when we're around to see them, there are plenty of signs that the deer are coming to the feeding station. The snow was absolutely trampled this morning! You can see it all the way back to the corner of the spruce grove, before the tracks start splitting up into smaller … Continue reading Signs in the snow
They look cozy!
While doing my rounds this morning, I was able to take a closer look at the bird bath. Throughout the winter, when chipping ice out to add water, I've been very careful not to touch the bird bath itself. It already had cracks showing on it, and now that the ice is melting away again, … Continue reading That looks like it’s toast…

The cats just can't get enough of that. Here, the top layer has frozen, so there are bubbles moving underneath that … Continue reading Photo(s) of the Day: water cats

With the outside taps now closed for the winter, and water starting to freeze, we are back to bringing out a pitcher of warm water to refill the cat bowls outside. With the bird bath now moved next to the bird … Continue reading Water
