The weather has been marvelous this past few days. There's still some patches of snow in among the trees in the woods but the rest is freed up. Laurie has been here since Friday, going home today. Yesterday was almost like a summer day. A friend of Laurie's came for lunch. I made a big pot of split pea soup and must say it was quite good. After lunch Roger put up another platform feeder for me and it didn't take the birds very long to make use of it. We were wandering around the property when I spied a grouse and tried to get a picture but as it was in among the trees it was difficult. Today is suppose to be lovely once again so I expect I'll be working at the gardens and hopefully get a chance to re-do the screen door. It's time it was up now.
The various bulbs I have around are now poking their heads up and my one crocus...I don't know where it came from, is now in bloom.
Pine Grosbeak and if I'm not mistaken, he's with his lady friend.
I do believe that I have another squirrel here. He or she looks somewhat different than the usual one. A bit more raggedy. Unless of course he's been courting and has started looking a bit frazzled.
The Grouse that I couldn't get a good picture of...
Putting up a new feeder. As you can see if you look to the left, there is still a wee bit of snow here and there. No leaves on the trees yet so everything looks terribly bare.
And, so I'm off to start my day.
