The bird food wreath is going down a treat, so my little buddies this week have been very well fed. Infact, today, there have been dozens of great tits, coal tits, a robin, tree sparrows, a collared dove and 2 blue tits enjoying the feast. Can you make some of them out in these photos...

Here is a lovely little Xmas twit twoo buddy that I would love as a house mate.
Expertly, lovingly and extremely neatly made by my special step-daughter, Paula, this little buddy lives at her house. I reckon he will have a few pals for himself before 'twoo' long, lol.
Where and 'whoo' are your pals this week. Leave a comment with a link to your post so we can pop over for a peep.

I found a little buddy in the autumn colours of the garden this week. Can you see him?
Right in the middle, and here too,

You have to look really closely. It's a bumble bee. There was one a few years ago about 3' from this spot, he was tunneling in the ground which is, I believe, where some spend the winter.

We had our first frost last night so I made this little bird feast just in time yesterday.
I had saved the wire circle from my Christmas wreath last year with the intentions of making this bird feast this year. I cut some of the branches from the big 'floppy' tree over the small pond and wired them around the frame. then all I did was wire the treats to that. simple.
Both Robin and Blackie have been 'eying' it up already. Coupled with some meal worms, seeds and suet on the ground, a big fat ball tube hidden in the big tree and some other bits in feeding tubes and bags scattered around, I hope our feathery visitors enjoy their meals this winter. They become my outside buddies through the dark, miserable days and give me great pleasure whilst I craft away in my little space.
What are your buddies up to then?
