Birds & Blooms - - Garden With A Purpose -

Hun­ker down near a win­dow with your cam­era to cap­ture flurry-filled pho­tos of birds at your feed­ers on a blus­tery day.

Af­ter each big snow­storm, check on your land­scape. Se­cure loose branches, cut back dam­aged twigs and toss on ex­tra mulch where it’s needed.

Fill your feed­ers daily, prefer­ably in the late af­ter­noon, to give birds a boost be­fore they roost for the night.
