Now That’s More Like It !!



The weather that is lol  .  After yesterday and Tuesdays initial shock of snow and ice , all has gone now thank goodness .   The sun is shining temps are once again rising and all is back to what it should be SPRING !!

I spent the best part of the day yesterday walking the yard looking for things to photograph as this time of year there isn’t a lot  ,  wild flowers aren’t in bloom yet  nor are any of the bushes  but they are all bursting with buds just itching to pop ! The birdies are busy feasting , singing and making nests  , critters are just busy eating and Miggs is watching over the yard .

                                                                  Buds on the trees .

The devious little rascals are invading the bird feeder again!

We're seeing the first shoots from the soil lately.

Yes, that is certainly more like it. Exactly how spring should look. Fantastic photos, by the way!

It has been bright enough here in Ottawa, but the winds make it seem very cold.

You are the second blogger, whom I have been reading, who has gone out to find some spring-like photos, around the yard. I really, really am getting the "message"! -grin- I should do this too!!!!! :-)))))

Love your shot of the robin and his worm. Great shot!!!

Oh so many glorious signs of spring. I wish we were as close as you are to full-blown lushness!

How very beautiful, and I'm so glad you can get out and enjoy it!

Yesterday was the first day that seemed like spring to me. Temps in the low 50s, snow melting away, teeny-tiny strawberry leaves, and birdsong. :)

Happy weekend!

I was looking for signs of spring too. My daffodils had barely poked through the earth, as of yesterday, but at least I know they're on their way. Happy Easter to you!
