Thanks for the Seeds, Man!

Here are some friends that stopped by for a bite to eat today:









Todays menu featured raw sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin seeds and peanuts in the shell. I had some too.

The squirrels are already getting fat. I wonder if cold weather is coming early this year?

Is that your cats squirrel friend?? We had about 75 black birds at the feeder the other day, they knocked it down and emptied it in about 20 minutes!! My mom says fall is just around the corner when the black birds arrive :( I am not ready for fall, I still need about a week of hot steamy weather :)

Catch up with you soon :)

Until then :)

You really are the nature whisperer. :)

Hi Wendi! That's a different squirrel, but the cat's friend came by again too. Yup, animal signs indicate that we may have cold weather early this year. The squirrels are fattening up early. Your blackbirds are a tell tale sign as well. It's amazing how the animals know the weather ahead of time.

Hi K! Thanks for seeing my photos! Yes, I'd like to think that animals like me. I hope they do, but even if they are indifferent, I still love them.

Well I think Mother Nature must read your blog; my request for "hot steamy weather" was granted, only thing is I think I should have mentioned I would like it to be sunny also.... It is HOT, STEAMY,GLOOMY,DARK and RAINING!!

Note to Mother Nature: This does not count for my one last week of hot, steamy, SUNNY weather!!!!!!!

P.S. I wanted to personally let you know that since my regular blogs -poof- disappeared the other day, I have set up 'temporary housing' at spillforth2.blogspot.com. But that's a combo of my regular blog and photo blog, so it's kind of a mish-mash. :) Hope you drop by...

I'm so sorry to keep bringing my drama to your blogsite, but I'd recommend you "unlink" my So the Echo address because it has been stolen/commandeered by some creepy person with a porn fetish. >:( So far, nothing has happened to my original Spill Forth Chameleon site, but who knows...

I am doubting that Blogger will be able to help me get either site back now. Grrr-arghhh!!!
