Yep, we just did it again. It seems as as normal as staying home.There is so much to miss leaving The Holler.
The year round Holler hummers are brave in an non-conformist way, they choose not to migrate thousands of miles across the Gulf of Mexico, but to stay year round with us at The Holler, despite winter temps that frequently fall well below freezing and could easily kill them.
Other migrating travelers visit us seasonally.
There are four hummers that lived at The Holler year-round this year. These are two of them. They rely on our feeders and bugs to keep them alive year round.
Now we have flown off before the full complement of spring unfolds, missing all The Holler spring has to offer. Don’t worry, family remain at The Holler while we are away, to take care of all our critters including the birds.
You make traveling a lot more fun and interesting!
Cheers to you from ancient Athens~
(Please do be patient iwth me if I am slower in responding, or unable to follow your blogs as closely as I would like, due to the realities of travel.)
Seattle’s Pike Place Market is a browsing, and eating paradise.
Could you resist buying from this cow? I couldn’t. I think the bedazzled pink tennis shoes are an especially nice touch and I think all cows should have them. 🐮🐮🐮
The quantity of stunning flowers, particularly the dahlias, are incredible.
The produce, fish and food stalls, will keep you occupied and eating for hours. Don’t eat before you visit here!
There is a Miss Biggy-Piggy for messages,
and lovely places to eat outdoors and watch the ships sail in to port.
Don’t miss The Giant Shoe Museum (actually you could, but don’t tell anyone I said this).
There are many stalls to explore filled with handmade art like these detailed miniature flowers in their tiny pots (click to enlarge and see the detail).
Cheers to you from the enticing Pikes Place Market~
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~
