The weather is cold now.  Freezing nights have killed off the flowers, although a few stubborn plants still have green leaves.  We still have no heat other than the woodstove and kerosene heater.  >_<  The pear tree and the nannyberries are shades of red and orange.  Birdfeeder traffic is increasing, mostly flocks of sparrows, although I've also seen a couple of mourning doves.  They have emptied the suet feeder once already, so I refilled that.
