The birds need a helping hand

Our old birdfeeder has seen its best days. But the birds need food, and I want to see them from the livingroom when they are feasting on nuts and sunflower seeds.
I found a couple of new feeders a few days ago, and now both I and the birds are happy.

The first snow

I woke up to the first snow this morning. Just a light sprinkle, and it will probably melt fast, but still it is snow, real cold, wet snow.
I like to follow the seasons, always looking forward to a change in the weather, always trying to live with the changes. Still, this year it feels too early to welcome old man winter. It might be because I have just spent three weeks in India, enjoying sunny days.
I had a nice Sunday morning walk though. There is always something going on in a garden.

Last winter preparations

Every season has its own charm. It is raining cats and dogs here today, so the week-end will be spent indoors. Perfect for creative activities.

The days are short, it is dark when we leave for work now, and dark when we are back home again. Luckily last week-end was better, and my husband did alot of winter preparations in the garden.

All pots are emptied or moved indoors to a cold room in the basement.

Old leaves are raked together and will make good compost for next years growth.
We are ready for winter.
