Winter Wonderland

It’s my birthday so I made some things out of gingerbread. Hee.

I fed the birds on our terrace this winter, including a bunch of turtle doves who came and ate bird seeds out of an ashtray on the garden table. They came in couples and they were adorable, and one of them got so used to me that he felt comfortable eating when I was standing only two feet away. Because, theoretically at least, it is practically spring and they should be able to take care of themselves by now, I stopped feeding them a few days ago. (Also because 1. I don’t want them to eat everything I’m going to plant over the next couple of weeks and 2. they spent the last few days fighting amongst themselves.)

And now it’s cold and rainy and windy and this guy is sitting there looking miserable and I feel like a jerk…
