Crazy times we are in… the rumour mill says that our (Ontario) lock down will continue till early June. (insert sad face!) Although our numbers are down… vaccinations are up we are still not in a good position. So like most I am playing it by ear and going day by day.
My work is still available curbside @ several locations (Joyful Gift Studio, Lively, Ontario, True North Made, New Sudbury Shopping Centre, Sudbury, and Gateway to the Arts, Main Street, North Bay, Ontario) as well as through the web side and on Facebook… (DLR Photography-Photography by Dani lynn Redgrift-Berthelot)
Please stay safe! Wear your mask… get your vaccinations when available!
other day I put out a small dish of seeds for my chick a dees….
apparently “chippy” thought this was his/her personal feeding dish…
Monday, Monday… and the sun is shining for now! Rain this afternoon… hopefully get another walk in later this afternoon. Out yesterday for an afternoon stroll… You just never know what you will come across… not a fan of snakes..(any size!)
Another “lock down” /”stay @ home order” is in effect. Please stay safe… wear your masks… Wash those hands…
My morning visitor this morning. We left the back window open in our back porch… during some renovations. I came out into the back porch to find this little devil sitting in my sunflower seed container… just stuffing his/her cheeks! He/She was as startled as I was…lol I think the noise I made scared the begeezes out of the little fellow.. and he hightailed out the window again. I quickly slammed the window shut! Good for the heart! Right!
Family Day! Happy Monday! The birds have been a tad scarce these
days… too cold maybe? Washing dishes this morning I saw a couple of
chick a dees at the bird house so I quickly added some sunflower
seeds… I attracted a Nuthatch as well. (Don’t get too many of those!
) No jays lately …
Happy Wednesday… half way through the week! 9 days till Christmas day! The count down is on at Gateway to the Arts!

So in years past this would be one of my busiest times of the year.
with shows, events, the market .. etc. Circumstances have not allow me to participate in even those that have run. I really miss seeing and interacting with everyone and in saying that I understand the gravity of doing so… and have chosen to sit this season out on personal bases…. that is not to say that my work is not out there though or not available. You can contact me here . You can also find my work at the Co-op in North Bay… Gateway to the Arts, 151A Main Street W, North Bay, Ontario. True North Made in the New Sudbury Shopping Centre, Sudbury, Ontario and at Joyful Home Gift Studio, Pinehill Plaza, Lively, Ontario. Thanks much for understanding.
Morning all… how lucky I am to live in a city and have these visitors regularly. So far this summer/fall.. we have had blue jays, chick a dees, a couple of wood peckers, sparrows, 2 northern flickers, crackels, mocking jays … and of course sea gulls, crows, ravens… and the ever dreaded pigeons!!!!
