Bird's Eye View

 Hello from the hills!
 We've had the best time birdwatching from the kitchen window for years.  I set out water and a few seeds and here they come.
Bluebirds and Purple Finches
There's always a bird or two to be spotted.

  They'll always show up for a morsel of homemade peanut/raisin suet.

 But since installing this window feeder (no affiliation) recently, we don't have to approach a window to see them, so I'd heartily recommend it if you're a mind to do a li'l bit o' effortless, up-close birdwatching.
 I cook a lot so it's nice to have finely-feathered company when I'm busy, too.
 Just add some seeds and be prepared for lots of birds.

Dear Winter, your days are numbered...

They're trying....

So are these succulents.
