PUZZLES!

Richelle Hunter

For many, a favourite family activity during the holiday season was always the completion of a new puzzle!  The box would be opened and puzzle pieces would be spread out over the dining room table.  Many family members would take some moments to try their hand at adding a few pieces to the freshly-started project...what a joy it was when the proper spot was found for that very difficult piece!!  Stop by 1830 Gainsborough Road to check out our selection of puzzles....many nature-themed, all beautiful!!

CANDLES, CANDLES, CANDLES!!

Richelle Hunter

We are starting out this Saturday on a rather damp note with temperatures expecting to drop at some point with a rain/snow mix expected. If you ask us, it is looking like a day, a weekend for CANDLES!  If you haven't been to our location, you will be amazed with the selection of Beeswax or Soy Wax Candles that we have to offer!! While it is extensive at the moment, be advised to shop early so you have the best chance to get the size, style, fragrance that you desire!

Soy Candles & Beeswax Candles available at Hyde Park Feed & Country Store

SEED LOGS AND PEANUT LOGS

Richelle Hunter

If you happen to be looking for a simple way to feed the birds, in addition to the feeders that you already have, or if you are just getting started at welcoming birds to your garden, you may want to check out our Seed or Peanut Logs!!  They can be easily hung from a shepherd's hook, etc. and are basically maintenance free!  Holders for the logs are also available. Excellent gift-giving idea too!!

FIRST SNOWFALL!

Richelle Hunter

Temperatures dropped....First snowfall of the season arrived last night!  We've got our heated bird bath set up & feeders filled as we know the cooler weather will bring more beautiful birds to the garden.  They will be searching out reliable food sources now and will know that they can count on us when needed.  Be sure to keep seed ports cleared of snow along with packing or clearing of snow below feeders for those looking for seed on the ground.

RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME!

Richelle Hunter

Pretty much at any given time in our area of S.W. Ontario and beyond, the chances of seeing a Bald Eagle have increased in recent years. It is amazing to think that these beautiful creatures have re-established themselves, calling our area home!

After stopping at a crossroad yesterday,and driving slowly as we pulled away from a stop sign, we noticed a rather large bird in the sky, suddenly realizing it was a Bald Eagle! Luckily, we weren't in a busy place and were able to pull off the road to get a few shots of it in a very distant tree.

WELCOME NOVEMBER!!

Richelle Hunter

It's definitely been a different fall....some beautiful leaves remain on the trees, warmer temperatures and some great bird sightings!! And it is November....wow!!

FROSTY....BUSY FEEDERS!!

Richelle Hunter

Many birds have continued to find their food in the wild so feeders might not have been as busy during the month of October as you might have expected....until now!  We had a much cooler day yesterday and frost this morning. The result? LOTS of birds visiting the feeders!!

AMAZING OCTOBER WEATHER...WITH GREAT SIGHTINGS!

Richelle Hunter

Our summer weather in October has continued with a simply outstanding weekend of warm temperatures and great sightings!  Red-winged Blackbirds have been filling the trees, sightings of White-throated Sparrows, Eastern Bluebirds & others continue, while the amazing displays in the sky at sunset and sunrise would knock your socks off!  The leaf colour hasn't been the greatest but there are some good spots one can find! Enjoy your week!!

JUNCOS NOW IN OUR GARDEN!

Richelle Hunter

Some folks reported Juncos in their gardens a week or so ago...we finally have them in ours as of yesterday, Thursday, Oct. 19!! This morning there are a few more providing some great entertainment as they chase each other through the yard. They are wonderful visitors around the feeders, often referred to as the "snowbird"!!

A FEW COOLER DAYS...PLAID IS IN!

Richelle Hunter

Temperatures this fall have been on a bit more of a roller coaster than usual and it looks as though the trend may continue for a bit yet! It is often difficult to know what to wear on a cooler morning, especially if the temperatures are fairly mild later on in the day.  As well, whether you are spending time around a campfire, in a hockey rink, or running out for groceries, these ponchos/wraps/capes might prove to be the perfect solution for a simple, extra layer! Other items also available!

JUNCOS ARE HERE!!

Richelle Hunter

We have had reports of Juncos in our area....yesterday and this past Saturday!  When these lovely birds return to our area from their nesting grounds further north, we know it is a sure sign that the seasons are changing or will be changing. Juncos are often seen below feeders or on the forest floor, but are also regular visitors to feeders throughout the fall & winter season with one of their favourite seeds being White Millet. If you didn't know, Dark-eyed Juncos are one of the most common birds throughout North America...and a feeder favourite of so many!!
