Some days are spring like and then we are thrust back into the arms of winter. This time of year is a push pull between Old Man Winter and Young Princess Spring…we know she will eventually win…but he makes it miserable some days. Yesterday it was almost 70F or 21 C eh but the wind off of the lake was cold.
I put the ice chisel, snow shovel and the walk de-icer away for the winter. I grabbed my parka and took it upstairs to the closet…and the snow stick was leaning so I took it out of the ground. I am certain I have irritated Old Man Winter.
The fisherman have stopped driving vehicles out on the lake. They fill their sleds and walk out on the lake.
The Pussy Willows have emerged.
We saw a Bluebird, just one over in David’s trees ( must have been an early scout). There are no Robins to photograph yet. Last night just before dark the yard was filled with Juncos….there must have been over a hundred of them. I think that means that snow is coming usually the Juncos bring snow with them.
Far Guy cleaned out all the Bluebird houses…we are ready to welcome nesting Bluebirds!
