Consider

A White-breasted Nuthatch seems to consider the best way to help itself to this suet block.

I want to thank you very deeply, my follower, for making time out of your life to see what I post. I very much appreciate your patronage and hope to continue providing you with images you enjoy and look forward to seeing.

I wish you a safe New Year evening, and a prosperous 2019. Cheers!

Lettuce

We have a healthy crop of lettuce – on December 27th! It is partly because the hoop tunnel moderates night time low temperatures. I cannot help thinking that it is largely because night time temperatures have been fairly mild compared to the historical average – generally -5C or warmer. Daytime highs have been 5C, give or take a few degrees.

Are these temperatures the new normal? Hard to say. We will find out as the years roll out.

Play

Fitzi and Lucy playing. They have recently played more; it is good to see that they are getting along well enough to play nicely. We hoped that Lucy and Fitzi would play well and take pressure off of senior Achilles, allowing Chili Dog to engage or not as he wants.
