Spring Fences


A day of two ago, while the Pres was more than content to watch TV, I had "the itch" to get out.



Thank goodness I remembered to take my camera along for the ride because...


I not only found fences but 








I also found Spring in the graveyard! 



Did you know that when the ground is frozen, the American Robin, Connecticut's state bird, feasts on seeds and berries?

Winter robins eat berries, other fruits, and seeds they find on shrubs, trees, and vines. If robins happen to overwinter near you, you can offer them frozen or fresh fruit. They'll go for apple slices, raisins, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and cherries.

  4. We've had Robins this year, just passing through, but it's been a delight to watch them digging for worms and taking baths in our chickens' water bowls.

  8. I always learn something new. I didn't know that the Robin was the Connecticut State Bird. Robins are great, but you can see them all year. I'm looking for a Red-Winged Blackbird. Then I will know that spring has arrived.
