🐣happy days... springtime🌂

 Is there anything more delightful than spring???!!! 

The tulips in the foreground have been nibbled by bun-bun! Little twerp!

I opted to take a photo of the crocus. You never know if it will disappear in the night! Which one do you prefer? It's tricky with my eyeballs and camera focus. I don't like wandering around with my reading glasses. Lord knows I lose them in the house, as it is!


I am afraid, with an early spring, we're going to have a need for more rain. We shall see what happens. These are unusual temperatures, our averages being 10 C. => 2 C. overnight.

Down in the forest, chocolate bunny eggs, and coyote poop!

The wood duck box is waiting for a family.

The backyard has been busy. Not so many deer, now that the grass is growing. The deer stopped in her tracks to watch the crows ! They were raucous.


This was from the backyard trailcam, under the deck. The usual suspects, but a bird of some persuasion. Now, the robin and phoebe both built nests here last year. I'm wondering what it is!


Now I know what it is! The next day, he sat and sang for me. phoebe

Sure signs of spring all over your post today!
I so relate to the glasses thing.

I don't know if there's still any snow in the watershed, but if not, then rain is due.

We are enjoying these few days while we can.

Crocus #1, love the close up with all the detail. Your grass has greened up so quickly, and those deer, noisy crows and a warbling Phoebe, delightful to listen to them all.

So delightful being in the country with you, J

Phoebe woke me up this morning. She/He was sitting on the railing post right outside my bedroom window yelling it's head off at first light. I left the bedroom window wide open last night so I could hear the peepers.
I'm worried we are going to have another drought year.
