Fantastic !!!!


                  Weather I mean. !!!  


     It has been like summer here so far this week  and it all started on Sunday . I have been outside enjoying it soaking it all up in every way I can , from cleaning and tidying the gardens to going for walks and taking photos of all the new that pops up or stays with us . Like the birds , oh the birds , we have so many wonderful birds , song birds of all types and it is amazing  as they serenade us from sun rise to sunset and even in the rain .

                         We have a lot of junk pieces of wood that will not do well in our wood stove so I like to burn them

                                                                                              in our camp fire .

              The King birds have arrived now and are busy looking for their nesting places as they fly around collecting bugs in the air chatting and squeaking their funny sounds ! Barn swallows fly over chatting and making their funny sounds as they remind me of my days up on the farm  when I was a kid and they would nest under our front porch  and we always had to watch out for them as they would dive bomb us cause we would be to close coming and going .

Hummy high up in our tree taking a break , they haven't been to the feeders much yet but are slowly seeking them out when it is quiet and no one is around , I find it takes them time to get used to us again !

              Miggs is enjoying her squirrel chasing , rolly polly`s  on the grass , following me to see what I am up to , sleeping in the sun and shade and our long walks through the valley village !

Well this is what I have been doing taking in all the new , beauty and wonderful weather after a long cooped up I wont say that word of the other season that is cold and yucky lol ! I am soo glad to get out and have my windows open , hear all the birds , peepers and Geese as they fly about and nest on our river banks !  

We had rain and a bit of thunder last night  Miggs was in her safe place she doesn't  like thunder but it didn't last long .  The  fog is just beginning to lift from the valley this morning as the sun try's to come out and burn it all off  , the temps have been wonderful  anywhere from a cool fresh 18°C or 64°F in the mornings to a whopping   23 °C or 82ºF .

                             So if I don't post from time to time  or visit you as much as I used to this is all why !

          Oh and it is my 4 th  year blog anniversary  and I have enjoyed every second of it from day one , I have hooked up with so many wonderful bloggers and have been able to see what you all have been up to through your wonderful posts and photos . There is nothing like blogger friends , fun, funny, honest, supportive , caring , sharing, and down right awesome !

         Thank you to you, our friends, who visit and have stuck it out with us here over the years and we welcome all new  friends to Woods Country Cove   .

                                                                               Until next time my friends !

Happy 4th blogaversary!!! I expect that it has gone a lot faster than you imagined that it would, but I hope that it has been an enjoyable four years. So lovely to see what you have been up to and to see that all is coming to life and growing and looking lovely in your garden and world. It is far more important to be outside and living and loving life than worrying about your blog! xx

It looks beautiful there ~ here in Minnesota we are suppose to have lovely weather today through the weekend but other than a little sun that is about it for today. This morning we had 31 degrees F ~ too cold for May (I had to cover some plants)... Happy Blog Anniversary!

Happy 4th year of blogging! That's wonderful. You sure have lots of great critters in your yard and it's fun to see them. I had my first hummer yesterday checking out the feeder. I hope he brings his friends back. It was cool and damp here today but your nice weather is coming tomorrow for the weekend. I am looking forward to it. Enjoy!
