It's Meltin-g-g-g-g-g-g-g


One thing about a mid-March snowstorm. The after effects don't linger as long as if it were mid-winter. 

Not that there isn't still plenty to go around. Can't walk to most places that I usually like to go...


On the other hand the wrens survived and new migrants are appearing every day....a Purple Finch yesterday. 

Becky bought me new glasses this week...been wearing the same ones for around fifteen years or so. I like them.....although the ground seems to be farther away than it used to be. Sure can see the birds and trees better!

Hopping down the bunny trail....


Otherwise not much for excitement. We saw a big police presence on the bike path yesterday as they stopped snowmobiles to look them over. Must be most of them were in compliance as they were going on their way. I don't begrudge them their fun. It has been a really open winter up until now. Wish they would be careful though...so many deaths this year...and stay off the lakes!

I'm lucky to see one or two of these a year. How wonderful.

You've inspired me. I've got to get new glasses. Mine are coming apart :)

Melting? Lucky you. We still have about 18" of icy, compacted snow on the ground.
But I'm glad you can see better. :)

Cathy, we are so fortunate in that respect. At least one pair nests here below the driveway pretty much every year. Do go for the new glasses! The exam is a misery but seeing the birds better is wonderful Hope you are feeling much better!

Rev. Paul, we still have a lot, but probably only half of what we did have. Figuring over 30 inches before it started to recede. Sorry about your frozen vistas....
