Morning temps in the teens and low twenties here these days.
Until a couple of days ago, the mums were still holding up, so I brought in a large armload, hoping some could be used in the pulpit flower arrangement. The indoor air gets so dry during this weather that they continue to struggle. But I think enough will hold up for church in the morning.
The hungry birds GOBBLE the seed at my feeders. Sunflower chips, high in calories which birds need during cold snaps, are also favored by many species year around.
Juncos and many others scratch for seeds on the ground,
so I scatter more sunflower seed and chicken scratch under the shrubs…
under the shrubs to give them cover and quick get-away shelter from the Merlin falcon and the neighbors’ cat.
Birds need water during freezing weather, too, and get it where they can. My water dish doesn’t have a heater, so they eat snow and ice.
If you can’t get out and walk during icy, nippy weather, then enjoy nature through your windows or photos. Our heavenly Father created all these things, and provided the Sabbath day as a time for us to remember what He has done. (Exodus 20:11) A great reason to worship Him, don’t you think?
