The “Artic Storm” that was predicted finally arrived in Northwest Oregon this morning.
Here are my perennial flower beds. I cut most things back a few weeks ago, but left the snapdragons, rosemary and carnations thinking I would cut them and bring them in. The birds are all out enjoying the suet hanging from the snowball trees and here is a nice surprise, we have one pair of Annas hummingbirds that stayed this year.
This is the top of the hummingbird feeder. We put a cap filled with water at the top to keep the ants from getting to the sugar water below (which worked). Looks like he decided to use this as a perch to stay out of the snow and keep warm next to the Christmas lights. (It’s 22 degrees now, expected to drop to 18 tonight).
Earlier this year I started a technique altered book which slowly evolved into my “working” altered book. Here is what it looks like.
Here are some of the pages that I thought you might enjoy.
There are still quite a few pages to be filled up and I look forward to trying some new techniques.
Stay warm and keep it simple!
