I sometimes get so far behind myself….that is, I take many photos that remain on my cards until one day when I look at them and think I should have written about them and put them up long ago. I really am trying to do better, but it seems like life often gets in the way.
A couple of days ago, I went for a small walk along the side of our road. The day before, while outside,l I thought I had heard a Robin. I just put the thought aside as Robins wouldn’t return to the area this early!
Well, the day I went for a walk, I knew I distinctly heard a Robin singing in a tree. Since I had the small Panasonic camera with me, I could surely capture the little bird’s photo. Problem was, the wind was blowing up the road mercilessly so it was hard to hold the camera still!
Not a very nice photo but there is no doubt whatsoever that the bird is indeed a Robin.
Now, I realize I live a somewhat sheltered life in that I don’t go shopping just to look around. My shopping excursions are generally to grab things we need and run. So, I probably miss out a lot. (especially since I don’t watch television much either!)
Michelle and one of her friends fancy themselves to be connoisseurs of all things candy corn, so when we were at Sauder’s yesterday, how could I resist? I have seen candy corn in Christmas red and green, but Easter colors?
Well, this last photo might not specifically have anything to do with spring, but I just took it a little bit ago waiting for Michelle while she is at school.
I just like the way this photo turned out. And speaking of ducks, wow, have the Canada Geese been flying northward. This morning, Angus felt compelled to awaken me at 4:45 ( yes, there really is a 4:45 AM) . While I stood outside surrounded by pitch black darkness, Angus poised himself in an “alert” stance. I got a little nervous, because I could hear a sound off in the distance as well.
At that point, I pulled the Scotties in just a bit closer to the house. After a little while, what must have been a huge flock of geese flew overhead. They squawked and made noise like crazy for a long time before things settled down again. That was the strange noise I couldn’t identify before! The rest of the day, I have heard countless flocks passing by….
Definitely sure signs that spring really is just around the corner.
