Wimp is my name when it comes to cold weather, so rather than stand outside (although it was 25 degrees today) and try to photograph some of the real birds that are scurring around trying to find some eats in the little bit of ice and snow we had, I opted to take a photo of one of the stationary birds in the garden. Wow, that was a run on sentence!! This one was made by Steve Hess of From The Summer’s Garden. It actually stays out all year with the “Joy” turned around backward. There’s still quite a bit of green here, the spirea is green in the photo as well as the hellebores and bark is now exfoliating on the oak leaf hydrangeas… love that!! Random thought… I need to start my Christmas shopping!
