Furry & Feathered Friends

I haven’t posted lately ‘cuz the garden is hibernating.  Yet life goes on.

I was pleasantly surprised when I looked out my kitchen window last Wednesday morning (on one of the coldest days of the season) to see one of my feathered friends.

12 11 Bluebird A bluebird!   
I don’t see them around much so I was surprised to see one on this chilly morning.  Sitting atop the feeder pole.  The feeder was empty so perhaps he was sending a message.  Seed is not their food-of-choice but I have seen them eating it when meal worms, etc. are not available.

On another note, have you ever seen a Pug after Thanksgiving turkey consumption?
12 11 ElsaOn a tryptophan high!  Conked out and snoring to beat the band!  Haha!

And then there’s silly Cally cat who randomly decides to play dead.
12 11 Cally She just drops on her back and doesn’t move!  It shocked me the first time she did it but I’ve gotten use to it.

A pleasant we al meander our way through the holidays, remember soon it will be time to check out the seed catalogs!  Hurray!

Wonderful shot of the bluebird! I've never seen one around here, but there are lots of other kinds of birds eating like little piggies at the feeder and under it. And it seems that right after Christmas the seed catalogs start arriving. I love pouring over them on a cold winter day!
Happy Monday!

Love all these pictures. I'd give anything if we had bluebirds, but the terrain is not right for it around here.

I hadn't noticed before in my searches!
This is a good blog. Keep up all the work. I too love blogging and expressing my opinions. Thanks

Bluebirds are long gone for here on the tundra but the arrival of those seed catalogues will give me hope that spring may come again. :)

I love blue birds. What a great visit. Your pug is precious and I’m sure he was quite content. A cat playing dead is unique for sure--funny picture :)
Hope you are having a great holiday season!
