Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Today was a cold blustery day. Strong winds made it feel so much colder than it was and these mourning doves chose to congregate under the bird feeder this morning and early into the afternoon. Some of them napped in the sun using their coloring to hide from any soaring hawks.
This one chose to sit on the frozen pond.
In the afternoon more had gathered.
Below the gold fish are just visible through the ice.
