It is interesting that this young dog does not bark to the squirrels. She followed a good while the squirrel's stepping here and there on the feeder branches.

The lonely squirrel on this dark morning. It seemed as if the sun had not risen at all today.
I have increased a bit light with help of windows movie maker - I don't know if the video became better that way.. :D

It is interesting my sister's new dog also almost never barks -- not at the squirrels or the cats or the post man. Their previous border collie (max is probably only part border collie) barked at the squirrels (and caught one once).

It's really amazing. I told my colleague yesterday about your dog looking at the squirrels and in the evening I see another picture like I had described it to her!

It's winter! But my Geranium Sanguineum is making blossom!

I took the photo today one hour after sunset, at 16:20.

Olga, here I think there are rhododendrons about blooming, but I do not think any of the Geranium Sanguineum is blooming. (I think I call them all wild geraniums even though there are different varieties some of mine are "weeds" and some I bought and planted.)

And you have those pretty orange lantern plants that have been on sale outside the grocery store recently.


I took a picture of my Geraniums this afternoon, the ones that look most like yours, the leaves seem very similar, but mine are mostly no longer green. We have had at least two frosts, which pretty much means winter is here.

Alice, it is a Physalis, and they have that little orange berry inside which is edible. They are quite fashionable over here for decorating food, especially sweet dishes.

Olga - I saw a squirrel running today :shake: so they are still around. I think they found so much to eat and hide, they did not have to come to human beings for it.
Weather is really strange, but over here it has turned now. It was raining and storming over the weekend and today morning the rain had also snow in it.

A great tit was about the fly against the squirrel. It turned way in the air. But it desided to returned and it turned direction one more time:

Stopped in the air:

The weather is really unpredictable these days,flowering and green lawns in the morning, and snow in the afternoon :rolleyes: Here we have not seen one snowflake yet this season, and that is very unusual.... :puzzled:
Very nice pictures of your flowers, snow and Squirrels Olga :wave:

The were no nuts left for the moment, but the squirrel stayed on a branch to wait.

A Great tit makes a approaching to the feeder, but.. hah :laugh: .. she turned around in the air.. you will see:

Yes, Lussi, it looks nice. They are skilled to fly! I have put that video to run two times slower on those 2 seconds. It's the video after the very first video above.
