the calendar says it is Spring!



My calendar says March 20, 2013 is the first day of spring!
According to Wikipedia : At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.

Sounds wonderful to me.

yippee!!

But outside of my window all I see is this ...

icy fingers climbing down my spine..
bbbrrrr!!!

No, that is not a black and white photo, go ahead and click on it to enlarge it. It is just another dreary ICE COLD day in Wisconsin. Not at all like spring.
   sighhhhhhhh



Come on spring, hurry up and make an appearance already!!

So how is your spring starting out?




   until next time...

I'm tired of snow



Yes, it is snowing again here in my part of Wisconsin.
I am tired of white, all shades of white. Even the big fluffy pure white flakes that are floating to the ground as I type, sigh...

Whose is with me?

I share the snow with you in the only way I can -
through images on your screen (LOL)...

Tired of shoveling snow? 
We are, especially when buried in it!

This sign should really say FREE!
Please come and pick up as much as you want.

I agree!

Even the critters are tired of snow.

This one says it all...


So I repeat ...






    stay warm and dry,
      until next time ...

feathered colors lost in snow



  As another blizzard pounds us in Wisconsin,
I thought I'd share some of the only bright spots of color I see against the dreary snowy landscape.

mourning doves, dark eyed juncos and a lone red male cardinal dig for food in the falling snow

Has there been any colorful (feathered or not) 
  sightings in your yard lately?




until next time...

please feel free to leave your colorful comments and link up to your posts!
