Well it is the last day of February already WOW ! that went fast . Not much going on here really it is kind of quiet , Miggs and I just got back from a nice walk , all though overcast the temps aren't to bad there is a little nip in the air today and the winds are blowing a little so far but later on winds are to pick up and gust up to 75 km/h or 46mph and with a mix of rain and snow , we had rain over night last night .
I have received a lovely gift that I had won from Beverly's lovely blog http://www.treasuredupandpondered.blogspot.ca/
It arrived earlier today in the mail , I love getting snail mail , such a treat now a days . Thank you Beverly for the wonderful gift and lovely hand written card you wrote to me .
Yesterday as I was out side cause it was a lovely sunny 10C or 50F day not only did I see and hear the Robin but I saw a few Grackles , there was one under the feeders gobbling up the seed .
So the Robins have returned shared that in yesterdays post I am always soo happy to have them back , the Grackles are here now to and I swear I heard a Red Winged Black bird in the marsh down by the river but haven't seen one as of yet . I think March will be a tricky month as it always is and teases us for bit as though spring is almost here then SMACK ! snow is falling . Our ground here is warm and squishy and the Robins have been pulling up worms and grubs from it already as have the Starling's so any snow we do get now I don't think will stay for long .
My Daffodils are still managing to grow above the ground and getting taller bit by bit and all seem to be doing well so far ! I hope spring comes early this year and pushes old man winter out soon , even though this winter has been a mild and fairly snowless one for us compared to years past but , I am ready to get going with my gardens and do the things we do in the spring time and the return of more birdies to our yard , loosing some layers of coats and jackets and be able to sit outside in the sunshine and not be cold , start hanging my laundry out on the line , camp fires and longer walks , as the sun rises early in the mornings and I can sit out on the porch with a cup a tea in hand Miggs beside me and watch and hear nature wake up and greet the day , sun sets are later in the evenings and see pretty sky’s as the sun lowers on the horizon and the birds sing one last time before bed , warm air and fresh breezes windows open all day and night , peepers and crickets chirp through out the day and night as their sound echo's through the valley and marshes , just a few of the things I love about spring time .
So come on SPRING ! I am patiently waiting for you !
Until next time
