At this time of year we sometimes wonder what the bird's and and other wildlife will eat during the cold, bitter winter weather. While walking my property in crisp autumn air I discovered fruits, nuts and berries among nature's plentiful food supplies. The animals and birds I'm sure know how to use and store them better than me. Yet I continue to supply corn, grains and black oil sunflower seeds just to make sure they get enough.

I wanted to post the picture that I made the banner from, but never came up with a place in the data base since it contains acorns, oak leaves, crab apples and other assorted leaves. I never thought they would use this banner, but here it is to my surprise. The picture is posted below; and was from October 11, 2010.

Exceptional banner, Leon. Mother Nature does provide a bounty for birds and animals but I like to have shrubs and trees that help sustain them during the winter months.

Thanks ladies for your nice comments! It was something that I toyed with, and almost scrapped it because of bug bites, wrinkled leaves and other imperfections. But, that seems the way of mother nature, "what you see is what you get". Smiling

I agree with exactly.
I love this banner Leon *because* it shows nature as nature really is and it is beautiful just like it is. A very earthy banner.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Thanks Betty. And thanks everyone for your generous comments, thumbs and acorns! All your thoughts and input are very much appreciated! My concluding thought here is that you all stay warm during this unusually cold weather pattern. Our high temp today was at 8°F, and I know many of you are much colder. So stay warm & stay safe!
