So “they” say yesterday was the first official day of spring. Well at our place yesterday and today looked something like this…
Not that I am complaining as it was the only good snow we actually got this whole winter. Hubby and I were both home, no thanks to my county job. They were too cheap to let us off in a foot of snow so they put us on liberal leave, so I took off. I am not dumb enough to drive with people around here who have no idea how to drive in the snow. Hubby and I enjoyed two days together. We had a great time taking care of the animals, doing things inside the house, I cooked a lot, baked some, we cleaned the vehicles off, played games, and we watched the birds.
We had some company watching the birds, as little Grayson is an avid bird watcher. He spent most of the day at his bird watching spot very much entertained.
We get a little variety of birds like woodpeckers, blue jays, blue birds, nuthatches, cardinals, etc.
It’s hard to get pictures of them all as by the time I would get my camera they would fly off. We even had our squirrel visitor.
Some of them liked to stay on the ground and eat the seed that fell from the bird feeders. Others flew all over from tree, to feeder, to the ground playing and eating in the snow.
We have a few pairs of cardinals. The males…
And the females are both pretty to me and I counted at least 4 pairs today.
Looks like we got at least the foot of snow they said we would get. The chickens won’t be happy they still can’t get out tomorrow, but the treats of corn, seeds, veggies, and fruits we have been giving them, have kept them happy for now. Hope you are seeing spring where you are.
