Seeds and Nuts
I went for my daily walk early in the afternoon, today. It struck me that the weather is rapidly getting colder, so I made sure that my route took in the market that's held every Tuesday in the centre of town. One of the stalls sells items for pets, but also sells big bags of bird seed and nuts, which I like to buy for the wild birds in the garden once winter is on the way. I even have a couple of plastic containers specially purchased to store them in.
Once I returned from my walk, I spent a little while putting the garden furniture away for the winter and then dusted down the bird feeder and bird table before putting out the seed and nuts. I have them arranged so they are easily viewable from the patio doors in the kitchen. It's always a pleasure to watch the small birds feeding. It's almost like having a large number of pets with the whole of the surrounding landscape as one big aviary.
