I took this photo a few days ago,
when the birdbath was not frozen and one of the 7 or 8 blackbirds,
that are roaming here around in my garden is taking an icecold bath.
really icycold...!

frozen bubble

This night it has frozen again..
Temperature goes up and down..below zero at zero at daytime.
As the sun starts shining during the day, the flozen bubble in the birdbath has melted
laying there as a gemstone in the icywater.

drops on ivy

Even when there is nothing...alive (almost) in my garden,
The drops make some highlights on the kind of seemingly dead garden.
Waiting for more sunlight to come.

drinking woodpecker

I just saw him...
for a long time I had not seen him...
Mr Woodpecker...or is it a she..Mrs?
The male has a red cap...

This one has clarifies all.
Mrs woodpecker.
She is drinking from the tree.
probably there is a hole...and in the hole there is water.
so you don't have to come down all the way.
Clever, smart bird.

Blue Fluff

Later this morning I saw her again..Blue Fluff.
Last year she or he sat in the window... (I think its a her, behaving quite ladylike)
..while getting dark and Bibi quite upset.

Now she walked again in my garden
I think she belongs somewhere in the neighbourhood..
She comes along for interesting reasons
(Bibi and Tommy).


This morning, while making my morningcoffee,
I saw a ladybird sitting on the sink.
it looked dead, I thought it was dead, so I slightly moved it to the window.
putting it there so that I could continue my coffee and see later...

But soon I discovered it could move .
it was alive, running away to save its life.
I took his pic..and then moved the little lady to the violets outside...

hide and seek

Robin in search for a little something under the feedingtable,
to see if there is a something left.

The Shokolat music I ordered..arrived.
beautiful huge golden stamp on the envelope.

first snowdrop

They are back!
the first snowdrop in my garden!

There are still some great seeds on the phlox.
I always let them sit there till springtime comes for the next reasons:
1st, they are nice to see.
s2c, they are 4 food for birds.
th3rd, when frost or snow comes..they are even more lovely.
4th, Its not a completely bare dull viewscape in my garden.


My view out of my window...

haha... it is snowing again.!

bird feathers

This morning a bird flew against the window..
Happily I saw he was still able to fly...and off he was.

At closer inspection on the glass I saw it must have been my little robin.
Some of his feathers were glued on the glass.
I am so happy he survived!

frozen stones

As it has frozen again last night,
lost of yesterdays hailstones have been preserved...
perishable date...till ?

Wednesday, January 19, 2011


There are beautiful cloudformations in the sky...
about half an hour later, the clouds started pouring out.

This time, no rain ..nor snow,

but hailstones...!
tumbling over one another..jumping... rebounding...

Finch is wondering if there is something left for him on the feedingtable.

keyboard occupied

I tried to install skype again on my computer,
which had been removed as I re-installed my computer last year.
Of course when Tommy is around you can be sure he likes to sit on the keyboard.
which makes it almost impossible to do my thing.

No strength..
flu...arrived last week.

first springsign

The weather is terrible..
raining..raining& big huge shower all day long,
combined with misty grey sky.
Yet there is a sign of spring...this Helleboris...dares to make some buds...

now waiting till all the flowers come out.

Is isn't quite spring yet...
raining drizzling...cold...

I found these drops on a table outside someplace.

Sunday, January 09, 2011


I felt a kind of tiny sparkle of spring in the air, though it is early Januari.
Since the snow disapeared, leaving the grass green again,
I heard the birds for the first time singing again this morning !

It feels as if a long cold night is coming to an end.

As if forgotten how it felt like... a long forgotten memory coming alive again...


birds singing...
warm gentle sunrays...
hearing the sound of bulbs, growing under the ground.
I realised how I had missed it, without me knowing that it had been lost.

she shared about this music.

with a modern twist.
Enjoy 2!

raining & thawing

It continued to thaw..and it rained almost all day long.
I think robin is happy that all the snow is disappearing...

or is it my own projection...(Iguess so)
that I am happy myself, that all the slippery-icy-drabby-clutter is on its return.

lots of seeds

In and under the melting snow,
there are lots of seeds...coming out of hiding.

Robin and all other birds do their best to find them all.


Thaw has broken loose.

Just before thaw chase away the snow and ice,
I captured this sugarcoated rose hip.

In my garden...
Ice & frost have made some beautiful firework for the newyear.
