Record Breaking Temps


Yes we have had record breaking temps here in Southwestern Ontario for this time of year and the month of February . It has been sunny with  cloudy  period's  . This afternoon was lovely and sunny and warm so warm the bugs came  out .  Rainy with thunderstorms for tonight they will be the  first and earliest  thunderstorms of the year  for us to .

                                 I noticed I have a few pansies growing and close to blooming in my garden already .

Our Red Wing Black birds and Grackles are back as are our Killdeer and of course my fave the Robins  , next is to look out for our Cow birds and Song Sparrows ,  it feels like spring here already   this weather is such a tease for all here and we hope it sticks around till the official spring on March 20th that is only 3 weeks away  and just gets better . March 12th is when we spring the clocks one hour ahead  and I cant wait for either hehe ! But for now I will take what mother nature has in store for us for these record breaking temps are amazing .

                                                                                     Until next time .

Enjoy it while it lasts! I doubt winter is quite done yet.

Well, we haven't had those kinds of temperatures, or those birds, but the snow is melting fast!

We haven't seen an red wings yet, but did have a visit from Chippy. We also spotted a coyote passing through the back fields a few times. Today it is pouring of rain, getting rid of the last bits of snow, but creating huge puddles all over the garden. I have a feeling that winter will be back the odd time just to remind us that there is still just under one month to go. But until then we are enjoying the lovely mild weather.

You are having some amazing weather there and it sure looks like spring. It's been mild here the past week and today is foggy and showery so our snow is melting slowly. I'm looking forward to hearing the returning bird but it will be a while yet for us. Enjoy.

I hope there's some of this left when we get home next week. Somehow I think we'll still be seeing snow for a while. Miggs is sure loving the mild weather!
