It has been quiet but productive here at Woods Country Cove . Rain has been falling , sun has been trying to shine in between the clouds whilst peepers chirp in the marsh and by the river , whilst birds sing and both them and the critters are busy with feasting and nesting and chasing each other around , flowers and grass growing trees and bushes budding and spring try's her best to keep a hold on it all !
Miggs and I went for our daily morning walk , when we got back it seemed like a good time to take photos as it had just rained and all was a buzz and out and about in the yard .
Puddles are every where , like this one on our patio !
Spring flowers are loving all this rain we have been getting and the odd day of warmer temps.
April showers bring May flowers as they say !
And the Robins have been loving the rains to as they have been scooping up loads of worms and grubs from the ground and singing from the roof and tree tops !
Lots of plants growing in my gardens now !
English Daisies just love the rains and cooler temps !
Above are our big maple tree buds and below are my Lilac bush buds all getting ready to pop soon !
My gardens are getting full of spring flowers and growth .
This is the only Pansy so far from last year that reseeded its self !
Our sweet little Song Sparrow was serenading me as I was wondering about taking photos , he sat ever so nicely for me and sang his heart out ! Such pretty birds ! he sings all day long by the house .
Fresh rain drops every where make everything look so new !
A bit of wild in the field beside us growing , Tiger Lilies !
Lots of wet creates lots of different types and looks of moss and fungi !
Miggs was also watching me as I walked about the yard and field beside us !
Oh my our grass needs to be cut soon !
I stood quietly with my camera and enjoyed of the goings on in the yard and took more photos .
Mr & Mrs Dovey taking a rest on the birch tree ! This tree is also growing it’s cat tail seeds now !
Here we have Mr & Mrs Sparrow taking turns at the house , Mr usually sits on the perch and chirps very loudly for most of the day !
Mr Robin or Mrs enjoying the seed on the ground with Dovey .
Our little Juncos are still here but will be leaving soon !
Pine Siskins are here in droves and fighting with the Gold finches for the food but there is plenty for every one !
By the end of the season all the birds are used to me with my camera and I can get fairly close to take photos and using a 55-300mm telephoto lens helps to !
Look who I spotted also watching me from up in our big old tree !
Why it is sweet little Alvin .
Gosh he is just so darn cute isn't he ? !
I heard this goose honking in a frantic behavior and caught a glimpse of him flying over just at the last minute , the sky's were a mix of white wash grey the kind of sky's that I don't like for photos really so I avoid sky shots as much as I can but there are times you just cant and so take what I can get lol !
The clouds have been opening up every now and then and sun has been shining on and off . When I was out side it was calm but the winds are picking up , now as it is the afternoon, the temps were warm but are getting chilly again and more rain is on the way with a possibility of wet snow which is ok cause the land is warm and it will just melt as soon as it hits .
So this is what's been going on here in our little southwestern part of our province Ontario as the battle of seasons continues .
Until next time .
