Winter Birds

Some of the winter birds are back
We saw the Black Cap Chickadee this morning.

Things Are Quiet

here and the trees are almost bare, winter is about to seize us.
The birds have quit their singing,
As they know what Winter's bringing
And they know that snow and ice
Will not treat them very nice,
So they'll wait until Spring for their song.
 Trees I see from my back door.

I Would Like to Share

This with you, my granddaughter wrote this in school 2001.
Visiting Memaw
My grandmothers house in Longview Texas had a very lush landscape
that made you want to stay outside all day. The train always ran across the rode, and you could always hear the whistle early in the morning. The yard was nothing but tall trees and thick grass, were at night you could run barefoot catching fireflies. The house as well was gorgeous it was
 white and green trim, and a porch with a screen door and windows. The kitchen always smelt like chocolate, and the rest of the house smelt of pine.  The house was full of antiques, and
a chirping bird name tweety. The house had wood floors, huge windows, thick warm rugs.
As a little girl it was a wonderful place to visit.
She  lived in El Paso Texas at the time so the tall trees were a
real treat she had never seen tall oaks and pecan trees before. 
Our Rachel is now grown living in Dallas Texas  and has this little boy, we had
Thanksgiving with them.

Where Is The Sunshine

Trees in our back yard that look spooky if you can see with a child's

This little bird is back from the north, he comes to see us every year at this time.

I Would Say

Summer and fall are over we had very small sprinkle of snow pass through last night.
 When did the grass get so brown? Must have been last night.
Cold but the sky is bright blue today.

The Last Of The Summer

 The frost turned these black
 These petunias are still blooming
 the mums are a bout gone
This blue salvia said I think I will put out one more bloom.

Not Dismayed

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed;
for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee."
Isaiah 41:10
Lord, help me to rest in your care, even in times of danger.
This is a church and school that is in my family history that was built  in the  1850's

Planting Done

The rabbits may eat some down to the ground.

and the leaves will soon cover them up

but they will come back in the spring and grow, for now I will enjoy the bright yellow
when all other will be brown.

The rosemary tree was planted close to the front door. Just walking by it stirs the air
and the perfume of rosemary smells so good.

We do cook with and use the rosemary.

Work To Do

Something new, a rosemary tree it smell so good.
I sure would like to keep it cut so it will stay this shape.
