Folks at The Holler celebrate Christmas in a Big Way!
One of our neighbors fills their multiple acre property with hundreds of decorations.
Each year there are more!
Many of them have moving parts. There is a almost life size Santa flown airplane with a runway that lands!
Some are twenty feet tall and the lighted trees are taller!
And this is all done by one Hollerite family!
Christmas is serious out here. I think the coyotes are impressed because they don’t chew the electric cables and coyotes chew EVERYTHING!
To be honest I get the Christmas bug too…..
but don’t like me coming near.
They open their wings to seem imposing,
while Holler trash they are busy disposing!
Good birds, they keep the sunflower field tidy.
Yep, we have sunflowers in December!
The birds & the bees love em.
I couldn’t just leave you with photos of vultures could I?
Cheers to you from The Holler Housekeepers and some December sun~
they soon return to rule the skies!
Note: Peregrine Falcons are the fastest-moving creatures on earth and have been clocked diving at up to 242 mph!
and flutterbyes have fluttered off,
when grosbeaks are gone,
and only hand-feeding-hummers,
and winter birds stay, it is time for us to fly away too.
We are off to spend time with Canadian grizzlies and send you cheers from your Holler summertime friends~
above the rest.
This 12-year-old Southern Pacific Rattlesnake was about 20 feet from our door. She was well over 5 feet in length. My son said, “Aren’t you going to take her picture?”
I was so shocked by her too close presence that I forgot about taking pics which is a first for me, and I was a bit rattled when I finally took them! This is the wild west, and the rattlesnakes live here, and always have.
On another note, a genetic study was published a few days ago, which clarified there is only one true north american wolf, the grey wolf, others are coyote/wolf hybrids.
Cheers to you from Eden’s Holler~
