Still Color in the Bristolwood

It is not as colorful  as a week ago, but after all the cold, snow, and high winds, it is somewhat surprising there are any leaves on the trees!

We have seen many of these squirrel nests high up in the trees.

We were graced with golden sunshine and bright blue skies today. Even with the sun, though, the air was very “nippy”.  I enjoyed the little wintry blast we had, but it makes me wonder if it is a sign of things to come! We still need just a little more firewood, and we will be set for the winter months ahead.

The birds have been feeding like crazy,too.  With November about to roll around, it really is time to batten down the hatches and soon nestle in for some cold weather!
