Happy Holidays to All of My Gardening Friends

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Everyone!!
My, I didn't realize that it had been so long since I last posted. I have been busy with the holidays as well as spending a great deal of time at the hospital. My Daddy had total knee replacement, so I have been involved in helping him and my Mama. One week before Christmas my brother-in-law had a life threatening episode and is still in the hospital. The doctors have still not found out the cause, which is very frightening, considering that he is only 39 and never had any health problems. So all of this has kept me quite busy.
I finally got the chance to venture out in the garden today. I raked some leaves and pulled some ground ivy that was beginning to take over.
Often during the winter my attention focuses mainly on bird watching and feeding. I had the opportunity to go out a few weeks ago and do some bird watching. Checkout the formation the birds had made against a Hawk, you can see the Hawk if you look closely. It reminded me of the old cartoons where a swarm of bees formed into different weapons.

Merry Christmas to you too Machelle. I'm so sorry you seem to have so many health issues going on around you right now. I'll keep you all in my prayers.
I've never seen a bird formation like that one. That's pretty amazing.

Love the bird photos. Bobwhites are some of my favorite birds.

Happy Holidays to you and your family!
