Hello Beautiful!

Last week while the ground was still really covered up with snow,

and the temps were below zero for several days....

I noticed a little scuffle going on 
out on the deck.
Two little birds were fighting over a sprig of fake berries
from this arrangement right outside the back door.

They had already stripped the cedar branches pretty clean,
and were still looking for something to eat.

Apparently they were scoping things out
for future housekeeping!

I think she likes it here!

Unfortunately hubs went out and moved the furniture around
quite loudly,
and scared the little darlings away.

I'm glad they stopped by,
even if for just a little while.

I just hope they didn't eat too many of
those fake berries before I caught them at it!


  1. Those are just the cutest little birds ever! Your photos of them are wonderful. Hopefully they'll pop back for another visit soon. I've noticed we're getting a few little birds around here as well.....hopefully that's a sign that spring is not too terribly far away!

  2. Eastern Bluebirds! We rarely get those in town. What a blessing.

  3. they are so sweet! I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit today, now what will you do with the springs? I was thinking they would make a cool rusty garland all hooked together, hmmmmmm. The old photo is my mom's family, she is the baby on the right and that is how I remember all of them that I was able to know, always laughing and goofing around! Happy WW! Theresa xoxo

  4. Hey Marybeth, Well how are you enjoying your new home these day? Your pictures of the birds are so cute Eastern bluebirds already? Everything around these parts are still in hibernation.
    Have a wonderful week kiddo!

  5. Awe, such a sweet post! I'm glad you 'caught' them for a little bit. :)

    Hopefully it's warming up soon!

    Take care.

  7. Precious gifts of grace, landing at your doorstep as a reminder of all that's good and right and pure in this life.

  8. You got some darling shots of those beautiful little birds! We get just a bit of snow a couple of times a year. Usually not very deep, and it all melts the next day! What a year, huh? Stay cozy!

  9. Aaww. How sweet. I hope you put something out there for them that they can eat for real next time!


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
