I'm not sure that my garden knows it's almost winter
with this rose bud...
...and this lovely camellia.
This is Freddy the Finch. He is the only bird that doesn't fly away when I open the window and throw out some bird seed. He even flies really close to the window when he sees me.
I'm beginning to think all the birds conspire to keep an eye out
for birdseed. The crowd seems to grow in size daily :)
