Groundhog for Saturday Critters

Today is Groundhog Day. Let’s hope his behaviour today makes a good prediction of an early spring!

Dear Mr Groundhog, 
Don’t be afraid,
If your shadowy image you see
Please DO NOT FLEE!
Stay around without fear
And let us know that spring is drawing near.
A sunny or cloudy day
Shouldn’t a legend make
For, anyway, many think you’re just a fake

Enjoy your day that’s named just for you
And please give us a good report, please do!
Because dear Mr. Groundhog,
I believe in you
I am linking today to Eileen’s Saturday Critters which can be found at viewingnaturewitheileen.blogspot.ca. Have a wonderful day everyone, you too Mr. Groundhog!

Overwintering wild apples

These wild apples still clinging to this wild apple tree are a little too high for the deer to reach , but soon as we get nearer tp spring and the weather starts to warm a bird I will probably find a few American Robins nibbling on there frozen beauties.  No matter the season, Mother Nature seems to provide for all it wild creatures as they strive to survive the cold winter season.

-16 degrees Celsius this morning as I got up at 5 a.m. Although the skies are now cloudy, sunshine is promised later on in the morning.  I think that I will make a return trip this morning to this apple tree location, just to have another look. as I enjoy the beauty of these wild apple berries.  A good day to you all readers!

Its October Pumpin Month

Here in Canada we celebrate two special occassions in October: Thanksgiving and Halloween.
A pumpkin represents two possibilities to aid in our celebrations; the possible outcomes being Pumpkin pie for thanksgiving dinner or handsome Jack for a Hallowe'en night Jack O'Lantern.... So your choice is "yum, yum,"  or "Eek!" Deciding which occasion you would favor foe a pumpkin use  just feast your eyes over these local beauties seen at the local supermarket which you can buy for $3.99.
I prefer buying several pumpkins to serve as seasonal decorations to line the side of our little cement sidewalk which leads up to the door on our front porch.  However with my plans for decorations comes the risk of having to scrape the pumpkin parts off of the street  in front of my house the next morning as often they are taken from our sidewalk path and smashed on the street sometime during Hallowe'en night.

Whichever your purpose or choice is: Have a great Hallowe'en.

February Pansy

My most recent Pansy news. The same Pansy as I the previous post has survived many winter snowstorms and as the snow

disappeared from the flower bed, I found a beautiful Pansy bud still intact on February the 17th., 2016.  I eagerly await spring, warmer temperatures and its continued growth and opening.

Late Pansy bloom in November

A check in my flower bed this morning revealed this beautiful Pansy blossom in bloom! Yesterday morning it had been rimmed with frost! I had bought cold resistant Pansy seeds in the spring and started them indoors as bedding plants sometime in March or April and then transplanted them as seedlings into my flower bed sometime in May; hoping that I might have some late fall blooms and I am rewarded for this project with this beautiful late Pansy blossom on this cold day of November 26th, 2015.

Blueberry picking time

Yhere was no time more exciting than blueberry picking time when I was a child  We each had a small domestic shortening pail and we would be off picking for the day.  The big reward when we returned home with full pails at the end of the day was that Mother would make blueberry biscuits for supper.  Fresh homemade biscuits straight from the oven slathered with butter smothered with stewed blueberries.

ries.  There was no taste comparable!!
