Welcoming Spring

Yes , finally it will officially be Spring as of  today Wed March 20th at 5:58 pm EST ,  WOOHOO !
The snow has all gone , the robins and other birds are collecting worms and bugs from the ground and our trees and bushes are budding already , The sunshine has been glorious the longer evenings of sun light and earlier mornings have been amazing and the temps have been slowly climbing . All our spring birds are back and very busy feasting and have already started on the nest making and chasing each other about lol !

I am so enjoying the song of my fave bird the Robin as they sing ,chirp and do their giggle sound and this year we have many in our hedges and trees again , I think the parents and babies of last year have come to make their nests   .

A few Cedar Waxwings stopped off for a rest in the evening at the tippy top of our big old maple tree. They are such clean bright handsome looking birds !

Our Canadian Geese have been buys flying about on their spring flight paths looking for their nesting spots over our valley and by our river banks .

            As the sun sets in the west the moon rises in the east through a dampened sky .

And Miggs enjoying the longer walks, warming sunshine , fresh air and sounds and smells of  Spring .

                            Welcome Spring for we have been waiting for  you .  
                                                               Until next time .

A Pre Spring Thunder Storm With This & That

We had lots of rain yesterday and a thunder storm  , I call it a pre spring thunderstorm lol  . I am soo excited that spring is literally just around the corner and it seems to have partially arrived here to . We have no snow left all our spring birds have returned temps are very mild  have been reaching 14C or 58F  seems like the spring birds all knew the weather was to get better and warmer , I always watch and listen to nature of the weather more than the human forecasts nature knows best 😊

The sun set burst out from the storm clouds and gave us this pretty view from my window .

Then I heard Mr Robin in the front of the house on the wire singing his heart out he was till he saw me with camera lol !

The other day it was soo nice out we had sun with cloudy periods and I was able to get out and start on a bit of yard clean up and have a fire .

This morning I spotted a few Grackles scratching in the garden searching for bugs , yes our bugs are out down here already .

I see buds on the trees and bushes slowly starting to form and all our birds are very busy with singing and chirping and chasing each other about now . I saw Mr Chipmunk the other day to but he was dashing from  under the feeders collecting more seed and back to his hidy hole  lol !
  I am seeing more signs of spring with in the land now to . I will be busy with all things spring now especially in the yard and gardens , I have been soo looking forward to being outside in nicer weather , cant wait to be able to be outside from sunrise to sunset again  .

                                                              Until next time .
