Spring cleaning is definitely going to be on the agenda for this coming week. The sun is coming in through the windows at a different angle these days and all the cob webs and dust bunnies are showing up from over the winter. It's funny, every year at this time the same thing happens. You go through the winter thinking everything is fine then one day the sun comes through in all it's glory and you get a shock when it shows up strings of dust around the ceiling and different corners of the rooms. So, it's time to get the bucket, detergents and rags on the go. Better to do it now as soon, I hope, I'll be out in the garden, not shoveling snow but at the plants.
I have to pick out colours to paint the outside of the house. Not an easy job! I like the dark colours and was considering a rust colour for the main part or even a navy, but the house is so small I'm afraid these colours would make it look much smaller, although it may look cute.
It snowed last night, only about five inches and feather light. I could sweep it off the deck and steps with the broom. Yesterday and the day before were bitterly cold with a wind and night temperatures got down to -14 C. The next few days are suppose to be chilly as well. Still a good bit of snow around as you can see from this picture taken this morning.
A few birds about including the Boreal Chick a Dee. I've only see the one. Seems to be hanging out with the Black Caps.
A couple of male Grosbeaks.
Getting ready to pounce.
