. . . my birds!
Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is: It’s Not This Time of Year Without . . .
Our instructions: This week, share with us something that signals this time of year to you.
Lots of folks are sharing photos of treasured holiday decorations or traditions for this photo challenge. But I haven’t decked my halls yet. I refuse to trim my tree before the Thanksgiving leftovers are gone. So, I had to think of something else that signals this time of year for me.
[Ah-ha Moment!] The return of my birds.
I don’t fill my backyard feeders in the summer and early fall. I wait until sometime around Thanksgiving to put out the first buffet — and it doesn’t take long for my birdies to return. They’re a harbinger of winter, and a perpetual bright spot of happiness for me.
