My Little Garden Visitors ...

Hello my dear friends,

I am sure that you all know by now how much I love the little wildlife that can be found in my backyard and that I just love sharing photos of it with all of you lovely bloggers and this is one of those posts.

It had been snowing here again over the past few days and with the snow we have little critters ~ furry and feathered ~ coming into our garden to find a little something to nibble on.

From a beautiful vibrant cardinal ...
...  to a little squirrel sitting and waiting in line ...
... until the little sparrow is done with his turn.
And this was our newest little feathered visitor ...
... a little woodpecker.
This is one of the reasons why I love our house and our back yard  ... even though we live in the city we have so many little visitors to our garden and I love that so much ~ Just like I love it when you lovely bloggers visit me here at Todolwen!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.


  1. Gosh your squirrels are a bit hairier than the UK variety! I expect they need more fur in your part of the world in Winter. We get the odd wood pecker here but usually hear them not see them. You have such a variety of visitors. Betty

  2. Loved seeing your feathered and squirrelly friends. They bring such joy to my heart when they visit at my feeders.

  3. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Your squirrels are different than here in the States too. We have the Grey, which kinda run off the Rusty Browns, but here on our farm the Rusty Browns which are so fun. We had 4 babies this spring following and learning from their mother. This winter only have seen 3 who are always having fun together. We put out an ear of corn on a little bench which is attaced to a tree and within minutes they can spot it being replaced! Nature is precious fun.

  4. What gorgeous pictures!! You are so lucky to be surrounded by such great wild life


  5. Thanks for a peek into your world! Love those little creatures...

  6. I too have the Downy Woodpecker, but mine is the female, no red top spot. Thank you for sharing.
