No Skypy Sunday…

Blue…

Squirrel me this, squirrel me that…

  This spring, we started feeding birds to have a little more company around the apartment. Many of them accepted the invitation… To the point that we have to fill the feeder twice a day to please our feathery friends. Our front balcony has really become the neighbourhood’s party place!
