I would have bet that the raccoons couldn’t get on top of the corn bin.  I stand corrected.

Phew!  Hard freeze last night, probably ended the daffodils.  The peaches and crab apples were just barely showing some color yesterday, we will have to wait a bit to see if they are hurt.  A lot of birds will be hit hard if the crab apples don’t make.

I don’t remember seeing Canadas at this pond before, so yay?  They tend to prefer more open waters, I bet they were a sight to see spiraling in to this little puddle.  The deer and raccoons hoovered up all the corn before they got there, so boo?  LOL

Tidbits

20170223_111706-1600x1200Breakfast pr0n!  Not what we had for breakfast, actually.  More a breakfast for lunch.  I don’t eat breakfast and Mrs J contents herself with a bagel but we both love waffles.  The bacon is thin sliced porchetta.20170224_092427-1600x1200I didn’t dump all the patio herbs, I wanted to see if they would come back in the spring.  The chives are doing great but the sage next to it still looks dead.  The bare twigs at the far right are rosemary that I am still hoping will show new growth but nothing yet.20170224_092346-1600x1200The front gardens are just barely showing some color – the scilla can be counted on for a touch of early blue.  The day lilies are greening, as are the daffodils and sedum.dsc_2191-1600x1200More meatballs!  I made several, there are two left.  Not enough for a proper sammich but I guess I can do a couple of meatball sliders.20170223_115130-1600x1200These were out for a last rise before baking.  I busied myself about making that breakfast-for-lunch while they were out and they really puffed up before I could get them into the oven.dsc_5597-1600x1200Here’s Ollie, watching me compose this post.  He’s already made himself at home.  He is fitting in rather well with no apparent animosities developing with any of the other cats.dsc03901-1600x1200One of the shelter cats.  The eyes in the original picture were highlighted by a stray beam that prompted me to play that up with a few tweaks.
