I might not ski ⛷ any more but using my tri-pod I can still capture first trax ❗️

The Birdies sure like the feeder during a blizzard

This ‘crested’ Titmouse got it’s tail plucked by a feral cat lists left & right when it flies Whilst the ‘bird cage’ feeder protects them 😉

It only costs less then $10 chuckies a year for ‘black oil’ sunflower seeds to keep all of  Wãshē Kōdä kats 🐱 friends happy & if some of them germinate in the canna lily bed that is cool whilst gold finches here in E.Tennessee luv sunflowers 🌻

‘Purple Shamrocks’ New Life for the New Year

Starting to look shabby

With the daylight getting shorter now I separated the root clumps & transplanted.

These were just three tiny ‘pips’ (¾” long) when first potted May 2017!

These are displayed on 6″ plates!

☔️Rain Rain go away… 💦

I haven’t even lit my citronella bucket (bug) candle yet this yr. The skeeters all drowned in June and water bugs have not evolved in E. Tennessee yet. Rainiest summer since I moved here 11 yrs ago. Think I could have planted water lilies in my one bed where the Day lilies were (they drowned too)
