Of Winter Things.....

The European starlings came to visit this morning. They landed in a great dark cloud of noisy bodies and invaded my feeders. They polished off a loaf of bread in 3 minutes!

Then they waited on the roof for more!

And here are our apple seedlings. We have labeled the cups and are measuring heights each morning.

This is Sweet Basil. I will have to transplant some of it I'm sure, but for now we are excited just to see it sprout...and already it smells good!

This guy was quite a task to make. We had to slice the middle ball in 1/4's just to lift it up. But the finished result made us very happy! Hope he guards our house until spring!
