We will be raking soon so I thought this infographic might be of interest. Enjoy!
We’ve left some feed out around the property. Provided the squirrels don’t get there first the birds should have a bit of a Christmas treat. It’s the least we can do until our new bird feeder is installed. Pat is working on something for the spring. And it is a good excuse to get up there more often.
Well it looks like we are finally getting some serious snow!
Here is a bit of info to watch for when you shovel your walks and driveways this winter! The stats are from the US but you get the idea. Stay safe!
I believe I must admit that this year the mice are winning.
Upon arriving at the schoolhouse last night we discovered the mouse traps and poison I had laid out has been largely ignored. Except of course the box of extra poison I bought which seems to be covered in mouse poop.
This may be a losing battle…
Well it appears that not only is summer over but so is fall.
Ok so autumn isn’t over for a few weeks but it sure does feel like it. I don’t have any wintry schoolhouse shots yet but the ones from this fall are a reminder that winter is on its way.
Well after a bit of research it looks like the Asian Lady Beetle has come to visit.
I asked about the strange orange bugs I’ve noticed in the country and city in the last post. Turns out she is an ugly cousin of the beloved ladybug.
And by the sounds of it she is a bit of a bitch. I think she may get escorted off the premises if she comes back.
After being away for just a couple of weeks it seems that the mice decided to make their way back into the house. Standard practice around here.
Another day of cleaning out the drawers and wishing the vacuum with the pokey thing was here instead of at the condo.
Sigh. Ah well. It look like they are also taking the bait so here is hoping that is our last visit for now.
Well it is officially autumn.
After a recent trip to Sudbury I noticed the leaves were starting to turn. A favorite time of year! So here is an infographic I found that talks a little bit about the leaves and their lovely fall colours.
