Winter is knocking at the door. We had a couple of brief snow showers a few days ago but that only lasted a few hours. Last night a huge system moved into southern Ontario and left a thick coating of snow. Thank goodness for the Canadian flag and the blue bottle tree else there would be no colour at all.
Here are both bottle trees coated in snow. Did I mention it is only mid November and technically it is still Fall.
Yesterday we had the red bellied woodpecker visiting the peanut feeder. I’m sure he knew more than we did and was stocking up on food before the storm. This is the male as the red extends right down to its beak.
I wonder if he flew off to any of these places before the storm as we haven’t seen him today.
Winter was knocking at the door, but I didn’t open it and welcome him, but he came anyway – an unwelcome guest. Please go away and don’t come back till much later in the year.
