a garden update. asheville

November 01 2015. 001 (6)

there have been rainy days and sunny days

sunny days and rainy days

regardless of the day, fall is still here and the temperatures have been quite mild (no need for a jacket on most days)

we are happy

and so are the birds

constantly chirping outside our windows

there are a lot of blue jays, junkos, house finch, cedar waxwings, cardinals…

oh the cardinals

they may not be hanging out in a red bird feeder against the green miami tropics but they are here

and we are happy to have them

because we do love them

whatever seeds are in there, he loves. because that’s his tree and that’s where he hangs out. and so i stalk him with my zoom lens
