Spring Has Sprung


The weather today was amazing , sunny, warm and just beautiful , blue sky’s and not a cloud in sight . The temps reached 10°C or 50°F and that was in the shade . Miggs and I went for a nice long walk this morning and then I tidied up the yard for a bit , had lunch and enjoyed the afternoon taking photos and watching the birds in the sun with no coat on ! Yup I got my first  suntan  of the season on my face !

                                              MARCH 2014 (56 of 72)

The fly's were out in droves with the warm sun and weather and the land is warm now to with muddy muckiness  as the fly's swarm the ground of grasses .

                                                                Look what I found in my garden !!

                           Red wing black birds were serenading  me all day ! Their song reminds me of being in the marsh !

                         The weather today was perfect and tomorrow much the same but warmer . I will be back outside taking in as much spring as I can , cleaning and tiding up the yard some more  and have a camp fire in our fire pit with all the tree sticks and twigs I collect from the yard , then take more photos of spring  and of course go for walks with my Miggs . 

                                                Tomorrow is April 1st or as we know it April fools day  .

                                                                              Happy April !!

                                                                     AHHH! Spring at last !!!!!

                                                                    Until next time my friends !

Spring has surely sprung!

I stopped at home to drop a few things off, and decided to leave my coat behind. It's warmed up a good deal today.

Is't it lovely to get outside and see green shoots and hear all the birds. I'm looking forward to another nice day as well.

One of my favorite memories is sitting with a neighbor soaking up the sun and moving our chairs outside to follow it around the yard. Good for the soul.

Great, Your spring has arrived. I like the shots of the seats in the porches and Miggs sleeping in the heat of the sun.

Gail said...

So glad the warm temps have finally reached you. Hope this is the true beginning of spring.

Nice to shed that jacket wasn't it?

It's good to get out, eh? Unfortunately, the flies and other bugs feel that way too.
