Spring felt like it was starting to spill out around us. I love the smell of sticky new buds, or muddy patches of pathways, or of brand new flowers. I took a bunch of photos - and thought you might like a view too.
|Sad bleeding tree - but again a great smell and super pretty in sunlight|
|Bird friends - we've been trying to figure out what kind of feather friends these are... ideas? |
We're guessing waxwings...
|Probably not a good sign that one of the trees kept raining down it's new buds...|
|Thankfully some of them are staying on the trees.|
|Our vigilant pup - spent a lot of time 'inspecting' what was around her.|
|Where's Waldo #1:|
Spot the woodpecker - can you see him?
|Lots of Red Winged Blackbirds|
|Where's Waldo #2: |
Can you see the muskrat?
I love the beginning flowers of spring. They feel so full of optimism.
Right on the lake there were all sorts of shorebirds, including Trumpeter Swans - they look so pretty swimming around, surrounded by the fluffy cattails from last year.
|Where's Waldo #3: The last one.|
Can you see the Grouse?
I love how you can practically step on them, before you see them.
Peace to you~
