"Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids, in fact it's cold as hell." Well so is Wisconsin this weekend! As you can see by the mallard, the temp is about zero...and the grasses aren't droopy-it's wicked windy! Not fit for man nor beast, but I'm a polite hostess, so I freshened the birdbath and filled all the feeders, plus seed on the ground for my birdy guests. My face is numb now...but the fresh air was actually nice. When it's this cold, you get numb so fast that it's not really cold I could lie down and take a nice nap in the I need more coffee! :) Anyhow, it's time to "stoke the fire" (in my imaginary fireplace), and surf the net!

Good for you for putting out seed for the birds!

I slathered pine cones w/ peanut butter last month; the birds loved 'em.

No matter the weather, I feel the need to keep my birdy friends well fed. They're so fun to watch, plus they bring wildflower seeds to my yard, plus help disperse the ones from my plants...keeps the area rife with pretty flowers for everyone to enjoy!
