This has pretty much been our view this week. At the moment there is a bit less snow on the trees and hedge compared to this photo. Today's high is -3 C.
Here is a better view of the hummer corner. There is an umbrella secured to the maple tree, bowl covers for the feeder and bubble plastic on the feeder base, sheets of insulation as buffers at the hedge sides and one hummer perched on a branch. Even with the very cold weather hummers appear each day. It means having the feeder out in the morning by 6:45 am (yes it is still dark) and leave in place till 4:45 pm (dark again). So it's not like they are catered too....
More snow is predicted for overnight on Saturday. After that there is a glimmer of hope for early next week..milder temperatures and good old west coast rain. I'll take it!
And now it's back to arts and crafts. I'm working on a crochet checkerboard. At the moment I'm on the last 8 block panel. After that, weave the blocks together, make some checker discs and it will be done. I'm still deciding on a backing.
wishing everyone a good weekend, stay warm and safe!
