It Was A Lovely Spring Day


Yesterday , the sun was shining birdies were singing and chirping the temps were warm .

I sat out side earlier in the day and soaked up some sun fresh air and all the sounds and sights and took photos  !


Mr Squirrel was having his lunch and watching Miggs at the same time !


                                        Miggs and Mr Squirrel having a stand off !


Spring flowers are growing taller every day , why Sunday past these were just  peeking above the ground !


Red wing black birds are  plenty in our yard , every time they sing or squawk it reminds me of the march where they love to nest and hang on the tall grasses ! Many years ago the marsh was the only place there's birds would be but as climate and the echo system has changed so have they .


                                          This little guy had the feeder all to himself !


Chippy peeking out  of the drain pipe by the hedges that isn’t in use ! But he has made good use of it to keep hidden  as he pops out every now and then to get some food from under the feeders and the bowls I put out .


                                      Mr Robin on my shed watching me watching him .

The day was filled with nature  being busy as spring has sprung   and as they all knew it was to rain soon ! And that it did . Thunderstorms and heavy rains hit at about 8 pm last night  and through the night the rain continued with the odd clap of thunder  and this morning is pretty much the same .  I like the smell of a fresh rain storm before during and after and the sounds of the birds all chirpy and happy as they are soaking wet lol !

                                           April showers bring me May flowers !

                  So today Miggs and I will just stay in and enjoy the comforts of a  rainy day !

                                     Until next time hope you have a good day !

                                                  Thanks For Popping By !

Yesterday was lovely, but things look to be changing for a few days ... big storm system moving in with rain, ice rain, snow. I guess I won't be working outside for a few days.
You captured some great photos of birds, critters and Chippy.
