Good Fences


A cold and dreary day ...
And yes, that is snow you see.  We did get a touch of it a week ago, but it fanished quickly.

Wild Bird Wednesday


A Golden Eyed Juvenile Coopers Hawk
 My usual visitor to my tree is my favorite Red Eyed, very large female.  Today, perhaps one of her offspring, also, I am assuming, a female because of her size.  Clearly hunting in the same territory, but the first time I have seen her.  Hope we will be seeing Mom again soon too :)







Here's Lookin' at ya ...

Through My Lens



One last stroll through the beautiful fall colors ...
 I took a walk with my friend in her new neighborhood and it was just delightful.  This was only a week ago, then the cold front came through, the winds blew the leaves off the trees and by Saturday we had a smattering of snow.  This morning it was 21 degrees Fahrenheit  ... Brrrrr.  And so winter begins:(










Stay Warm Everybody ...

Caturday Art Blog Hop


Learning to Play
Meet Buffy (The Vampire Slayer) ... she is a young female cat who was dumped in our area and has been living outside all summer.  My goal was to bring her in before winter and so far so good.  Over time we gained her trust. She clearly was not feral and once she felt safe she became a loving little family cat.  She has now had her shots and been spayed and is living in our upstairs bedroom.  We had to teach her to play and what she could scratch on, but rubbing, purring and curling up in my FH's lap came naturally.  She also uses the cat box without being taught by us.  Our next endeavor will be to integrate her into the rest of her family of 3 cats and a dog ... Fingers crossed.  :0

A Wall
Not tall enough or glorious enough to be "The Donald's" Wall, but a wall none the less ...
