Red-Shouldered Hawks of Tingsgrove and Beyond: Snow Time …




Here is hoping you had a wonderful week, doing whatever you enjoy. We had 5″ of snow on Valentine’s Days and the dogs had such a great time. I love watching them enjoy this white fluff. If you have ever had too much snow and wondered why… I think that it is created for children and dogs, that is my theory, but don’t take me to the bank on it 😉 The first dog images are of the 8 year old Meaka Some have mentioned their breed, or what kind of dogs are they. They are registered German Shepherds.

They also have the long coat gene and thus they are Long Coat German Shepherds~

Our grand-daughter Maci adores dogs, actually all animals an her she is giving snuggles to Meaka~


Here we have once again our Silveit who turned 3 last month. She is younger, but quite a bit larger than Meaka~




On Valentine’s Day we celebrated Master Braden’s 8 birthday at the local Mexican restaurant, surrounded by his brother, sister and twin cousins~




No cake … fried ice cream for everyone~

Following a full day of snow showers we had fog roll into our little valley.

I took the images of the female Cardinal at that time, through the glass windows~



A rare visitor to our feeders during the Winter months, an American Goldfinch~

I placed some of those peanut butter nut balls that you can purchase and placed them into a Finch feeder and this way the wee birds like this Carolina Wren can get a nice good for them snack~

I also move the table top umbrella to the ground during Winter months. Ground eaters can feel a bit of protection from predators. I usually make popcorn, or use stale breads and crackers as well as some bird seed thrown under here to keep them satsfied~

My husband drove down, yes, without me, huge sigh, to spend a few days with our daughter Ashleigh and her husband Matty.

While there he got to visit with Ashleigh’s good friend and mentor Greg Hauptner, who is the founder of G Star School of the Arts, a long running and outstanding A rated school in Palm Springs, Florida. Mr Hauptner has been interviewed as a guest on the “Today” show to discuss this fine establishment for higher learning. I sure wish that I could have experienced such greatness in my schooling. A few years ago Ashleigh worked with Mr. Hauptner as his Administrative Assistant. Bill said that this was a very memorable meeting~




Bill also got to visit the set and meet the wonderful people where Ashleigh is one of the VP’s with Brandstar. The Balancing Act is one of their shows that they produce for the Lifetime network.

He said the people were incredible and so nice. That’s our youngest daughter with her daddy…note the comfortable feel he had with his feet up 😉
White-tailed Deer come to feed in my yard every evening. We have 11 to 13 in the herd that we feed~




😉 I took this with my not so good phone camera, but still thought too cute of a Gray Squirrel on our deck rail~
Hmm…little Chipmunk has awoken from his hibernation to come out for some bird seed~


I love the intricate and delicate details of birds nests.

I wonder what birds built this, how many young~
