……………apparently birds and squirrels love it!
We are snowed in. We are iced down. Four inches of snow smothered us in four hours yesterday afternoon, then changed to freezing rain and all hell broke lose on the highways and byways around here. It took our neighbors four hours to complete their usual 20-30 minute commute, included many detours, being pushed on occasion, then having to ditch their car at the end of our street, which starts with a slight hill, and walk the rest of the way home.
As I write, ice is building up - fear of power outages concern us.

Meanwhile, from the window I spied two new birds under
the feeder - the pair of male Redwing Blackbirds,
toddling about with a large group of always gentle
One of my pair of 'live-in' Carolina Wrens
Female Eastern Towhee
The other Wren, I think!
One of at least a dozen grey squirrels living in our
garden with their nests in our tall trees.
This morning they discovered the bird treats I'd mixed
up and scattered on the front porch -
crushed cookies and breadcrumbs with peanut butter
and shelled sunflower seeds………I think
this is one happy little varmint who is glad he
ventured out of his cozy nest!!!
Hope you are safe and warm wherever you are.
