Wordless Wednesday ~ Snow Bird



Red Bird

One of my favorite morning rituals, sit by my picture window, camera in hand, sip my coffee and watch the birds. Hmmmm… makes for an interesting mental picture.

Snow of Saturn

When did the Weather people start naming the winter storms?  We had Q (literally) and now Saturn… what were the others? Did I miss the memo?
Anyway, here we are in March already and Northern Illinois woke up to more snow this morning! I know we need the moisture but I’d love to see some spring daffodils instead. I’ve got the itch to start my new garden!
And from the amount of birds I have at my feeders today, I’d say they are ready for spring too!
