April was when we finally started to see the squirrels again, on a regular basis. As things warm up, some of the trees began leaking fresh sap, and this squirrel is enjoying a sweet treat. Upside down.
We haven't seen much of the squirrels for months, but they seem to be back now. This photo was taken and a particularly windy day in April. The blowing wind reveals the different layers of colour in the squirrels fur. Hard to believe how dark it is under those red tips.
First up, I want to share a couple of photos from our living room camera. This one was taken a few days ago. With the birdseed running out, there have been much fewer visitors of late. Which means that, of the ones that do show up, they are less active and easier to get photos … Continue reading Critters, and technical difficulties
My daughter got some pictures of a squirrel at our feeder stand today. It would go up onto the platform, then stretch out to catch the bottom of the hanging planter, pull it closer, then climb onto it. It saw my daughter taking pictures. Now, there's a face that can haunt dreams! 😀 Sure doesn't … Continue reading The Squirrel. Sees us.
We had a nice rain today and, when it was down to a drizzle, the girls decided this was a good, safe time to get the fire pit going and burn down the pile of wood we had in it. Then we had a cook out. Because, why not? While we were out, I could … Continue reading There be Cows Here!
Another sick day for me today, so not much accomplished! My husband put out the food and water for the animals outside this morning. Now that the snow is pretty much gone and the risk of falling is reduced, he wants to do that more often, as the pain allows. He informed me that we … Continue reading New Birds today!

Birth certificate: check Health care card: check Something with physical address on it: ______ It was the third item that was the stickler for us. Usually, it would be something like a utility bill, but she has none in her … Continue reading Almost checked off the list (plus critter pictures!)
I saw only one deer today, and it took off before I had a chance to take it's photo. Sadness. Today was a day I ended up spending mostly on the computer, though I did manage some time outside enjoying some manual labour, working clearing up the pile of wood in the garden. It seems … Continue reading No Deer Today!
Good news; today was the last day my mother had to go to the hospital for injections! But first, here are a couple of critter pictures from the DSLR, yesterday. I didn't upload them until today. There were very few, but a couple I really enjoyed, that I hope you enjoy, too! Yes, I am … Continue reading I can rest now… and critter pictures
Oh, how hard it is to choose photos today! Between the house and the spruce grove is one of my mother's gardens. It used to be a flower garden, but it now seems to be mostly bushes. The only one I recognize this time of year is a lilac bush! The snowfall was heavy enough … Continue reading Some more critters
