Groundhog Day is not until  2-2-2016, but, I know someone & I'm not naming names who's tweeting about a prediction he made upon seeing his shadow (in my urban — NYC —  garden)!

#TWTWTW

As I consider that it was only a week ago today on 1-23-16, that the‪#‎jonasblizzardnyc‬ paid a visit to my garden, a visit that not deter wild birds from also visiting (as evidenced in the following images taken on that day), I recall a sitcom from bygone years ‪#‎ThatWasTheWeekThatWas‬ OR ‪#‎TWTWTW‬AKA That Was The Week That Was!

Seen and heard in a tweet by yours truly: "Someone — & I'm not naming names — won't  they see another near "their" bird feeder!"

#FridayFollowUp

This past Monday, here on Blogger, I had a lengthy entry filled with photos and narratives of my recent activity on The Last Leaf Gardener's Facebook Page. In keeping with my intent to post some of my Facebook (Fb) content here on Blogger (for readers who don't use Fb). 

The following is a partial "copy" of my activity since my last entry here on Blogger:

After I published the aforementioned post, I made an entry on Fb that included copies of the following photographs.

These pictures were accompanied by a comic strip featured on Mutts, a comic strip that I have spoken about a number of times here on Blogger.

Here's What's Been Happening....

It's been slightly over a month since I've posted here on Blogger, but I've been very active on Facebook as well as Twitter, and I'm finding my way on Instagram. I do realize that not everyone participates in these mediums. Therefore today's Blogger entry is dedicated to some of my recent activity on Facebook, in the event that you want to keep up w/what's going on with The Last Leaf Gardener as well as with Cam's book, Words In Our Beak Volume One.

I'll start with today and go backwards. Today, January the 25th, is the birthdate of #VirginaWoolf, and I posted the following image as a way of honoring the title  of one of her books, To The LighthouseAnd I made another Virginia Woolf reference, which was to a quote attributed to her: "One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well."

Moreover, I added that "this past Saturday, 1-23-16, during the jonasblizzardnyc‬, an array of birds visiting my garden heeded Woolf's philosophy!"

They did not let the heavy and fast accumulating snowfall deter them from dining well, as evidenced by the pictures included with this entry that feature a blue jay, a common grackle and a downy woodpecker noshing during the snowstorm.

The day before this FB entry was yesterday, Sunday, the 24th, the anniversary of my beloved grandfather's (Albert Elmer Herman Louis Melahn) death (pictured below).


He is no stranger to those who read this blog, for I featured him in one of my very first entries here on Blogger, but I also featured other info on Fb yesterday, which had to do with Jonas, the blizzard of 2016.  Here's what I stated: "In my observations, during yesterday's ‪#‎jonasblizzardnyc2016‬, as an array of bird types visited my rooftop garden, I happen to recall a quote from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow."
