Not much happened in the garden this weekend, as I was consumed with other priorities, including having all 4 grand kids over for the weekend and putting in new flooring in one of the spare bedrooms. It's a laminate flooring called "High Gloss Desert Rose" that was chosen since we loved the color and laminate is supposed to be more durable when pets and kids are involved. Eventually we'll be redoing all the floors in the house with the same product, but we started in what used to be our son's room, which will now be used for the grand kids when they come over to spend the night.

This brings the total number of species at the feeders to 14 and I expect that number to climb with the variety of birds that winter in our area bringing opportunities for new sightings at any time.
