"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds." Aesop


"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if...
no birds sang there except those that sang best."
Henry Van Dyke 





I was hoping to snap a few pictures of the cardinals this morning, but these were the only feathered friends I saw...shame on me....they're really just as beautiful...







And as expected....SQUIRREL!!!!







These poor guys have to eat too...obviously they didn't squirrel away enough acorns for the winter months....they remind me of my sons, totally unprepared!!









"And now, when comes the calm mild day, as still such days will come,
To call the squirrel and the bee from out their winter home;
When the sound of dropping nuts is heard, though all the trees are still,
And twinkle in the smoky light the waters of the rill,
The south wind searches for the flowers whose fragrance late he bore,
And sighs to find them in the wood and by the stream no more.”
