Paula's Patch: A Minnesota Garden

Come wander in; my gate is always open! Gardening / Birding

More Like Spring November 10, 2010

It’s really more like spring in the Midwest rather than November! But I’m not complaining. It’s been beautiful! Sunny, temps in the 60’s and I’ve been enjoying my nice cleaned up yard. This is the first year in many that I can remember getting all my fall chores done before there was a real hard frost or snow.

Feels wonderful to sit on the swing and see the tidy yard and beds (although pretty bare!) and watch the antics of my winter birds.

I moved some of my feeders closer together just outside my kitchen window so I can see their activity this winter. I always had a feeder there, but now I’ve put a couple more with a variety of food so hopefully even the woodpeckers will come closer to the house.
