A Walk in between Rain Showers

Showers were in the forecast for all day yesterday and we had a big storm the night before, so I decided to stay in my own area to walk around.  Of course, I brought my camera and hoped that the rain would hold off until after I returned home. My first sighting was a man… Continue reading A Walk in between Rain Showers

It’s Melting

We have had a few days in a row where temperatures have stayed above freezing at night and gone up to the high teens during the day, so finally we are seeing lots of bare ground and the ice is pretty much gone from the rivers.  Lakes still have ice, but not strong enough to… Continue reading It’s Melting

Yesterday I was able to watch 2 of the Grey Squirrels racing from tree to tree… Continue reading Grey Squirrels

Mock Orange and a Squirrel

My Mock Orange is starting to flower.  It doesn’t look as if it has anywhere near as many buds as usual, but it is still very pretty already. I can’t forget about the squirrel that was chattering at me as I was taking the pictures of the Mock Orange.  I wonder if this is the… Continue reading Mock Orange and a Squirrel
