Last night I went to a community prayer vigil for the families, bombing victims, bystanders, and medical personnel in Boston.
It was wonderful and comforting to find solace in community.
Prayers continue for all affected by the senseless violence.
And now for today's post:
A friend who has hundreds of birds coming to her back yard gave me two bird feeders.
Last fall, hubs filled them with seed that I bought and we waited for the birdies to flock.
Maybe it was the presence of Honey Cat. She might look like a big monster to them but really, she's an old cat who probably wouldn't pounce on a bird if you put it in front of her.
Well, last winter, at long last, the birdies started to come.
They found the backyard restaurant at last!
Now that spring is here, the birdies are enjoying taking sips of water from a birdbath, too.
The problem is the neighborhood squirrels.
The other day, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a squirrel shaking the pole the squirrel-proof birdhouses hang from.
Honestly, I dislike the bushy tails and find them quite exasperating.
ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO ERADICATE SQUIRRELS FROM THE YARD? (They dig up and eat spring flower bulbs and dine on seeds meant for the birds.)
A goodbye and a hello... - It's been quite some time since I posted. I'm afraid I have a sad update on our sweet Midgie girl. We adopted her on August 28, 2016. She was 10 years...
