A absolutely beautiful present sent to me by one of my many "virtual" friends. A little bit of America to go on my tree smile
(it's to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the postal service)

An echidna pretending that I wasn't there.
They are quite shy and you don't see these too often. Probably been a four or five years since I've seen one.

by the looks of her right eye they're spiked with catnip lol And please don't tell me those are "three blind mice". That would hardly be "sporting" (giggles)~~~

Ha! I love the Reindeerbeer. That's a neat gift that I'm going to have to copy.

The Holiday table.

Nightfall by Chislehurst station. The days get longer now by 7 whole minutes a week so not too long before they start brightening up a bit.

Great chaffinch photo! Beautiful sky! Wonderful doggy pic! (I've got enough snow here...)

Here's my little house, as promised, with snow, taken this morning after I'd been shovelling my walkway.

This chaffinch seemed to be searching for a snack and not taking much notice of my approach though I was still far enough away not to be a big threat.

Great pic!

The bird here is not so easy to see, but he's there in the corner of the awning, driving Precious crazy. This was taken yesterday, but the same scenario played out today, with the bird seeming to know that the window lessened the threat. I guess it is a nice little shelter from the snow and wind.
