Love Of Nature, Photography, Gardening And Country Valley Living

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


It is nice and sunny today but right now it is bitterly cold. The temp is to be going up to  +1 above zero. Not all that warm to me but at least the sun is shining that makes me happy. I am doing some laundry early this morning and just puttering around. Miggy is sleeping after she had her medications. I find myself constantly looking at photos of flowers,green grass and anything  to do with spring and summer. I have noticed a lot of bloggers posting spring photos to try to ward off the winter blahs I don't blame you. I have had enough of this harsh cold and lots of snow as well, it has been quite a long winter with  hardly any sunny days. I cant wait for the warmer weather and all the snow to be gone now. I haven't been able to do much photography as I have to watch our Miggy and not let her out of sight so she doesn't hurt herself  , the surgery and bandages don't seem to slow her down much and she is determined to get a little to hyper  and I have to remind her to relax and settle down, well you should see the look on her face when I do tell her ya would think she had just lost a best friend poor girl ! ears hung low and the look in her eyes is so sad as if to say (“ awe but mum I’m bored of being careful” ).

As for the spring photos that everyone is posting to ward away this nasty winter blahs . I have a few I would like to share with you all, just a few of my favourite things I love about spring and summer.

These were just lovely to see, ELaine. I may have to reach back into my own photo archives for some spring pics too. Like you, butterflies are one of my favorite subjects along with the backyard birds. Glad Miggy is doing so well and hope you get a thaw soon.
