Flowers

There are some residents in my apartment (all ladies I believe) who look after the flower beds around the building.   Everything is looking so pretty that I went around and took lots of photos this morning.  🙂   These ladies do a wonderful job of providing the colour during the summer months.  I will have… Continue reading Flowers

Catch Up

Between the move and my upcoming vacation, I haven’t been around here much lately and I apologize for that – but it will be awhile before things get back to normal (whatever that is) again.

A Flock of Common Redpolls

I found out this morning what eats the seed pods from the River Birch that is just off my balcony.  There were dozens of Common Redpolls making short work of all those pods. They are not a bird that I am used to seeing, but the name did pop into my head.  I had to… Continue reading A Flock of Common Redpolls
