The yard is brown. Even though the temperatures are warm..almost 70 degrees yesterday, it feels like spring but it does not look like spring yet.
You can see the snow stick on the right. Far Guy has been waging war with the acorns. There was such a good crop that you could be propelled across the lawn on them. He had the old mower out and tried to chop them up..you cannot blame a guy for trying.
Ugly bug warning!
These bugs are hitting the windows at night..this one was out during the day. I call them June Bugs..I did not take Entomology. Anyways these bugs did not get the memo that it is March and technically still winter. They usually hit the windows in May not in March.
Our hundreds of Red Polls that were here and eating thistle seed like it was their last supper left with the warm weather. There were about six hanging around the feeders yesterday along with our normal Woodpeckers, Nuthatches and Chickadees.
We went down to the Dead Beaver Area on the river yesterday to see how it was melting.
We are having great date nights this week. Tonight is the third night in a row for a “date.” Hockey is pretty good lately..The Fighting Sioux pulled out a win last night..they played the Minnesota Gophers. We are Sioux fans..turncoats, I know. Tonight they play again..Denver. I usually watch from one couch and Far Guy from the other, I sometimes doze off between goals, Far Guy does a play by play commentary so I can keep my eyes closed and still keep up with the game…sometimes I find his voice so soothing I wake myself up snoring:)
