Time to Shop for Suet

Birds can only get so much energy from apples. I would think some nice long-burning suet would be the things to power one through a cold, cold winter night.
I took this photo this morning around 7:30. I wonder what it will look like tonight when I get home?
They were nice juicy apples for birds and had been sitting on our counter a little too long for humans - picky, picky, spoiled humans.
I'll see if I can't get a follow-up picture come Thanksgiving morning - femminismo

Wow - is that ice beneath the apples?

femminismo said...

Yes, it is ice. It's been very cold here. Warming up today to 45 or 47 degrees (Fahrenheit).

No birds ever touched the apple slices. Not even a squirrel could be enticed. They are obviously holding out for something much, much better. But the ice has melted and now the rain has begun.

It is an enchanting photo. I clicked on it and the details are amazing.

And here I was thinking you were making xmas pudding from scratch for them.
