This afternoon was lovely and sunny and warm so warm the bugs came  out .  Rainy with thunderstorms for tonight they will be the  first and earliest  thunderstorms of the year  for us to .

                                 I noticed I have a few pansies growing and close to blooming in my garden already .

Our Red Wing Black birds and Grackles are back as are our Killdeer and of course my fave the Robins  , next is to look out for our Cow birds and Song Sparrows ,  it feels like spring here already   this weather is such a tease for all here and we hope it sticks around till the official spring on March 20th that is only 3 weeks away  and just gets better . March 12th is when we spring the clocks one hour ahead  and I cant wait for either hehe ! But for now I will take what mother nature has in store for us for these record breaking temps are amazing .

                                                                                     Until next time .
