I think you're right - that little bird does look cold. It's sure an adorable picture. I need to go read about your Amaryllis plants - Bob's fizzled, fell over and croaked! He was sure disappointed.


I'm sometimes sad to see a bloom finally open because I enjoy the anticipation so much. Happy New Year!


I would watch that orchid all day and night as it opens. How exciting. Love the bird photos.


Poor little bird. Hope you're staying warm, Kathleen. Your comment about the "excruciatingly long build-up to bloom time, actually makes the flowers even more special/spectacular" also applies to the long wait for winter to end. Happy New Year!


I have an Amaryllis that I have been willing to open fully since before Christmas, it is going very slowly, obviously quite shy!!

Best wishes for 2011


Happy New Year to you!


The Goldfinch does look a little cold. We have had a thaw here it was up to 62 today and the snow has melted but I know it will all be back.
Have a Blessed New Year ahead and thanks for all of your gardening help this year.


I always feel sorry for the birds when the weather is very cold. I bet he was grateful for the thistle seed when he got his turn.

Ah yes, seed catalogs... :)

Winter is good for planning and dreaming.


The bird does look cold. Our pond is still pretty frozen but the waterfall keeps part of the water open. Birds have been hanging out all around the pond for a drink or a bath.
I think 2011 will be a good year for you to remove grass, that's hopefully something we'll be doing too. Anything to create more room for plants.


Yes, that poor bird does look cold. We've had cold weather here too after a nice long stretch of mild temps. I wish you many blessings in the coming year. Hugs, Grace
