Not quite the end of winter for us but it's been looking very hopeful. We've had unbelievably mild weather off and on this season. Above zero temperatures on many days including today. I've not had to shovel snow very much which in itself is a blessing. And here we are, into February and a short month at that! Yes, I've been thinking of spring and planting, moving plants from one spot to another, weeding, cleaning up the beds, etc. I always feel and have said many times that once we're into March, hope is in the air.
So...there's a squirrel making a nest in one of the Aspen trees. I saw her today going in and out a hole in the tree, bringing bits of greenery inside. There have been lots of Juncos here most days and of course Chick a Dees. Not many Jays which is strange.
Some pictures I've taken this week.
I believe this is the squirrel I've seen nesting.
Nice to see the Woodpeckers around again. I was missing them for a while.
And a little beauty of a Hawk here one day.
