Cold Winter Day

A cold day today. Snow, and then sunshine that seems colder than the snow.

A hard day for chickadees and goldfinches and redpolls and nuthatches and such to keep warm. Good thing my backyard has a lot of birdfeeders in it. Lots of food for feathered friends. arms 006

What, you don’t see the birdfeeders?

I mean all those goldenrods, asters, dogwoods, grasses–all the shrubby, seedy, weedy stuff we haven’t mowed in…gosh, we haven’t mowed this back field in probably ten years.
