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…
Things are warming up again. We're actually above freezing right now. Unfortunately, that means that any hibernating flies that have survived the cold are starting to come out and sluggishly make their way to windows. Guess how I know that? Go on! Guess! Yeah. The cats have found them. I first discovered this when I … Continue reading Silly Kitties, and relentless winds
Caught him, slinking through the trees... This boy has seen better days!
We continue to have frequent visits from deer in our yard. I got this photo out my window yesterday evening. Of the 5 deer in the photo, 4 of them are a family group. One of them was part of a group of 3, two of which I could see through the trees near the … Continue reading Evening and morning critters, and going off the rails a bit

I just have to share this photo of Creamsicle first! What a silly kitty! I had a whole bunch of them, all wanting attention, following me when I went back to the trail cam to change the batteries.

I thought it was just adorable, how they loafed themselves against the wind, while keeping their toes out of the snow. 😀 I would love to have been able to do that same, this morning! The batteries were getting low on the new … Continue reading Another day
I've been told I should make sure to add warnings before I post certain things, so I'll start with that. Towards the end of this post, there are pictures of a dead bird. Aside from that, during my morning rounds, I did get photos of Two Face. Her wound is healing quite nicely. You can … Continue reading The reality of things
Part of my morning routine, after I've done my rounds and switched out the memory cards on the trail cams, is to review what the cameras recorded. It's not unusual for me to see things they recorded that we miss completely, otherwise. Like all the deer that go past one of the cameras while we … Continue reading Of fences and a wounded cat
