This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

winter birds in Florida

I went to visit my parents in southern Florida (Naples area) last week. Talk about a great time to get a break from New England! It was sunny the whole time, 70's, and no snow! Fortunately I was able to get into and out of Logan between storms with out delays. I was lucky. Anyway, here are the birds I saw down there.

Ahhh Naples! I can't remember the name of the little running bird top left? When we are lucky enough to go there in the Autumn, we like to walk the beach at first light, these wonderful birds run along in front of you frantically pecking at the lovely multi coloured clam shells. Thanks Kathy, a lovely photographic visit for me!

I wish I could spend a few days in Florida too. I am so tired of the cold weather and so looking forward to see the garden growing again this year. These are beautiful bird pictures.
