Before the snow came I would look down at my garden and wonder how it had gotten away from me. Was I having too much fun this summer? Did I harvest my vegetables and just ignore the weeds? I guess I did.
This morning we had another snowstorm. I watched the snow going sideways past my window. I happened to be looking out the kitchen window when the snow finally stopped and a flock of Juncos flew into my garden and started feeding on the weed seeds. I have plenty of bird feeders up for them but they seemed to be enjoying something that my overly weedy garden provided. I actually walked away from the window feeling a little pleased with my laziness. The birds were happy and now so was I.
