This & That

 

The weather has been up and down but through it all the sun has been shining  and some snow has been melting . It is pretty quiet here other then the birds and squirrels raiding the feeders  and the birds chatting and singing away Miggs barking at our Crow George and George squawking back  ok so maybe not to quite but you all know what I mean just the type of quiet I love and am used to lol .

I know we are all fed up with snow yes including me but I had to take some photos of the ice on the snow in the sun as the texture  I find amazing !

The moon rising over the valley was breathtaking last night , I am still practicing my night shots especially when the atmosphere  is cold and damp as this does toy with the  photos !

                I woke and got up this morning got  my cuppa tea and Miggs her breakfast and watched the sun rise over the valley .   Times like these I feel so lucky so blessed to live in a valley that is soo beautiful !

The evening will be lighter later and eventually the mornings will be lighter earlier again to !   Then  Spring is just around the corner , I am still waiting for the arrival of the Robins should be any day now as  Mother nature pushes old man winter out  of here  more and more each day !

Well  that's my This  & That for now off for a walk in the sun with my Miggs , fill the feeders again and enjoy the day !

Marching On

 

Now that it is March we have ever changing weather as  Mr old man Winter gets pushed out by Mrs Spring  and they battle it all out through the weather with any thing  from cold to warm , snow to rain ,  to freezing rain , sun to cloud . We get warm rainy days more now in March and that helps with the melt down . Today it is cloudy and mild and we are to get freezing rain and a snow rain mix . But yesterday was a nice sunny day all though it was damp and cold  the kind that gets to the bone  , Miggs and I went for a nice walk and played in the yard for a bit , I can feel and smell that spring is in the air more and more each day ! . Then I came in to warm my bones  Miggs not a chance she wanted to be out side  so she stayed out and watched the birds and critters and I took photos from my kitchen window !

It was nice to have the sun set after 6pm and it stayed light till almost 7 pm . I am soo looking forward to spring . The weather this time of year can change on a dime and for the better all of a sudden we could have all this snow today and it all be gone by the end of the week or at least close to it March is an unpredictable month and usually in a good way to !

I just am so anxious for warmer weather , more sunshine , trees and bushes to bloom Robins to arrive  and eventually garden flowers  all things springish lol ! Not like I am rushing it or anything  YEAH RIGHT , ! HURRY UP , WOULD YA  lol !!!!!

      So as I dream and anticipate spring arriving I will be off now and leave you with a few spring photos from last year !
