A Walk in the Spring Time

I am getting tired of packing and since it is a beautiful morning, I thought it was a good time to take my walk along the trail behind my complex that runs along the Seine River again. I did find a couple of patches of green, but otherwise, it is mostly various shades of brown.… Continue reading A Walk in the Spring Time

The Birds at Lockport

I took a drive to Lockport this morning to see how the ice was on the Red River at the locks today.  Not much ice around there, but some Gulls, Geese, Crow and a  Bald Eagle entertained me while I looked.

But – the critters seem to know the weather and their forecasts are often more accurate… Continue reading Spring in February?
