We’ve had bluebirds around our feeders occasionally this season. They like the suet we put out but prefer to gather it from the ground when a bit drops off. They really like it when I change out the suet cake and throw the remnants of the old one on the ground.
We do all need a new year. I wish all my friends here health and prosperity in 2021. Let’s hope things look very different, in a positive way, twelve months from now.
The sun was rising behind an apple orchard when I took this picture. The tree branches were coated with frosty snow making them glow a bit where the sun was hitting them.
We had snow last week that led to several snowy hikes over the following days. This was made in the local conservation land. The snow clung to the branches for days. We also made the gentleman you see below.
Merry Christmas to all my friends here on WordPress. It’s different this year. We will talk with family on the phone rather than see them in person, and gifts were sent via the postal service. But we put up a tree and still plan to have a traditional meal. We are hopeful we can celebrate together as a family next year.
This is an antique well drilling truck that was decorated with lights and an inflatable Santa for Christmas.
I was asked when Santa would make an appearance and decided today was a good day. He got a Christmas tree this year. I made this using an old pallet. The truck I made this summer is now carrying a Christmas tree but may have trouble with all the snow.
We had our first sizeable snow this week – 14 inches. I stayed close to home and made both of these shots from our yard. The “barn” is actually a garage built in the 1940s to house a pair of school buses.
This old wheelbarrow rests against a pile of firewood.
I was hiking last month and spotted this rather pecked away tree on a hill off the trail. I really appreciated the rugged shapes and stopped to climb the hill and take a picture.
This lobster boat was tied up in Portsmouth, NH a couple of weeks ago. I liked both the boat and the reflection.
The John F. Kennedy Library in South Boston looks beautiful bathed in the morning sunlight.
