New blog

I have started a new blog, without a Photobucket connection, and hope to begin uploading photos starting tomorrow, thanks to a site I found called The Idea Room that hosts a photo a day challenge.

The name of my new blog is called Glophotobug, which is a bit of a mouthful, but generated itself when I was trying out various titles.

Hopefully, see you tomorrow, on Jan 1 at my new blog.  :)

Happy New Year!

Our Christmas snow melted ~ unexpectedly it regenerated itself and returned ~ no tripod, so a little shaky...

Happy New Year, everyone ~ here's to a splendid, happy and healthy 2018!

Merry Christmas!

I have just written this message upside down with a broom handle, from my front doorstep.  My sons are coming later tonight, and I thought they'd get a kick out of it.  Perhaps I should have written, "Don't just stand there, grab a snow shovel."

We had some snow during the week, which never really melted before today's snowfall.  While it doesn't really amount to much, it does make corners a bit slick when driving.

Thank you to Mke and Dina for your lovely Christmas cards.  I'm sorry my blog seems to be dwindling away.  With Photobucket now requesting money for photos that have previously been uploaded, I find it quite disheartening.  Anyway, if I do blog, I will just upload the photos from my computer as I did above.

The hummingbirds are once again slurping up slushy nectar because of the freezing temperatures (usually 2 - 4 degrees below 0 C).  There are lots of winter birds around enjoying the suet blocks and seeds.

It's Christmas dinner day tomorrow, and I have made a steamed pudding for dessert.  There are a few cookies around, too, which, knowing my sons, may not last until tomorrow.
I wish you all a most delightful Christmas and very best wishes for 2018.

Away with the fairies ~

I've been away so long, it's true...
It might be asked..."Well, who are you?"
Disappeared without a trace
Left you hanging in a place
Bereft of nil..
Please forgive me, if you will!

In the spring, I found a door
And since that time, I've found much more.
Enchantment followed me around
Up in trees and on the ground... 
A wildwood plot was weeded well ~
I'll show you now...where fairies dwell.
