As has become our tradition as the Christmas season ends, our Charlie Brown tree has another chance to bring a bit more joy. Hannah helped me bring it outdoors – strategically placed outside one of the living room windows. I dipped apple slices and pine cones collected before the snow arrived in melted vegetable shortening and the rolled in bird seed. Leftover tangerine skins were filled birdseed and frozen blueberries.
It took about 30 minutes before the Chickadees began to show some interest.
With the temps at a whopping five degrees I was able to enjoy photographing from the comfort of the living room.
The blueberries were a hit.
The tree became the stage for an aerial dance, Chickadees flying to and fro.
I give it until tomorrow morning for this little guy to raid the tree.
