A Christmas Treat


The Illinois Prairie Path runs through the middle of Saint Tim's home town. This is a beautiful tree lined rails to trails walking, running, bicycling path treasured by locals and visitors alike.

Janbaby and Saint Tim

Two trees along the path have been planted in memory of Tim's maternal grandparents. For the last several years, we've gone out to hang pine cone ornaments as a Christmas treat for the birds. For us.

The stranger walking past with his beautiful dogs turned out to be a family friend. No surprise.

Jumping for joy.

I 'll just bet that grandma is smilin' down at those pine cone bird feeders on her trees. What a clever idea to continue a thoughtful memory.

Beautiful! I love the tradition and think I might start it here, in the frozen west. 5* at 9:00 this morning.

The birds will love me. I already love the birds.
