It is surely if slowly getting to be spring in our area...A whole week without snow! We even had some sunny days. But as this is being written, we have a rainy day. Oh well, the flowers to be need it!And while petcretary was at her work, it SNOWED! Huge fluffy flakes swirling in the strong winds we were having...but at least it all melted as it hit the ground...too warm at ground level. Sheesh...But when she was on her way home, it was very clear and she could see all the stars and visible planets.
On Friday, petcretary saw this dude checking out our feeders...an uncommon and rare sight around here, they prefer the real woods...
|This is a Pileated Woodpecker, aka Woody'! Sorry for the poor quality, it was taken through a screened window...and then he was gone!|
Other signs of spring in our yard:
|Taken at 1030pm, so the lighting did strange things to Benji...|
|Looks much better in Black and White!|
Dalton found some daffodils trying to show up...the background was very messy, so we took it out...
|Look! I found some daffodils!|
|Now you can see the daffodils, and I, Dalton thought I looked good in a mountainous region...BOL!|
It is nice to see the spring flowers coming up. We get a lot of woodpeckers here. The Green Woodpecker is the gardeners friend. If he finds an ants nest he will completely clear it. The Greater spotted is the noisy one who spends all day rat tat tatting on the trees and likes the bird feeders as does the smaller Lesser Spotted one. Lovely selfies from both of you.ReplyDelete
Lovely selfies! Bet you two will be busy when days are warmer and flowers in full bloom! Purrs and hugs!ReplyDelete
you both look super great no matter what the background is, I put a soft kiss on each nose which is what the photos make me want to do... you do look great with the mountain background. hope that snow stops soonReplyDelete
those are great selfies, guys.ReplyDelete
What kind of birdie is that in the top picture?
That is a Pileated Woodpecker; he's quite large, the largest of our local woodpeckers and while not rare, its uncommon to see them in a yard as compared to say, a forest.Delete
Pawsome selfies! How nice to see the woodpecker too :)ReplyDelete
We are looking forward to Spring, but today is not Spring like. We are getting some snow but mum says ot will not last as the rest of the week is warmer and sunny. I just hope the sun brings some tasty grass!
You boys look great today. It's so great to finally see some signs of spring around here too.ReplyDelete
It's hard to snap pics of birds; they can be so fast.ReplyDelete
Wow Dalton, suddenly you have mountains in the neighbourhood. Plate tectonics in action, I guess!ReplyDelete
Woody looked real fine to us! and the pups too, as always.ReplyDelete
xoxoxo, Bibi & Meep
I love yoor selfies! And I think yoo look beautiful in color, Benji. Years ago my momma rescued a Pileated Woodpecker when he crashed into our garage roof and fell unconscious. She wrapped him in a blanket and put him in a box, and sat over him for almost an hour before he came too and felt ready to go back out in to the world. He was huge! But obviously kinda dumb to fly into a garage roof.ReplyDelete
You two look fabulous and that woodpecker is a looker too, beautiful!ReplyDelete
SNOWDROPS! Apparently we don't get them here because it does not get cold enough for long enough (a bit n the South Island but not further North!) so what a treat to see!!!ReplyDelete
That is a very cool special guestReplyDelete
Lookin cute you two!ReplyDelete
we can not wait to see the tulips... they are wonderful flowers...ReplyDelete
Lulu: "Ahh, that cool mountain air!"ReplyDelete
Charlee: "We're more interested in that bird ..."
We had some really high winds lately, complete with fallen trees a few blocks from our house. Now we have wet snow falling. Typical for WNY this time of year. We do have a few little daffodils growing, though. Stay warm, pups! Hopefully we'll get some spring weather soon!ReplyDelete
How wonderful ! Spring shows it's nose ! We are a little late this year I compared the pictures with last year'sReplyDelete
I swear! I know I've said it before, but I love your two boys. There is something in their faces that makes me smile and read what they have to say. Every time. We had a nother tornado warning in the middle of the night...second weekend in a row. The wind is blowing very hard right now but the sum is out and the temp is 73F. We have had rain at least 2/3's pf every week for years. High winds seem to have dug in its heels here so we're dealing with that too.ReplyDelete
you have way more Spring than we do!! I love that Woodpecker! What a great shot!ReplyDelete
Oh, snowdrops and tulipani!!! WOW, are you going to have surprises galore in a few days! Thank yoiu for the glimpse of Ms Spring.ReplyDelete
At least the flowers sprouting out, Dalton and Benji, so Spring is on its way, even if he's late😎Extra Pawkisses for all of you🐾😽💞ReplyDelete
