The weather has been dreadful this past week here at home and at the cottage - cold, windy, and wet ; there's been frost and even some snow.  It's got to be tough for the farmers and the birds and critters.  Over the weekend we saw 3 Canada Geese families with 11, 8, and 6 goslings who are no longer yellow but still fuzzy ... they're so cute!

One night whilst at the cottage it was +2 C in the evening and the hummingbirds were flitting back and forth in front of the windows, through the verandah, and around their feeder sometimes hovering at a window, then one of them sat on the window ledge for about 15 minutes before flying away .... I was afraid they might not make it through the night especially since it was 0 C the next morning.  I was delighted to see them flitting around the next day!  Here's the little guy - can you see him peeking between the blind slats? 
 I'd whined mentioned to my DH that it would be nice to have a washing machine at the ctg. so we didn't have to cart linens back and forth. So look what I got .... isn't he a sweetie?!?!
 The garden is doing well at the cottage, which is more than I can say for the one at home.  I'm thinking about sod for the garden at home next spring.
