Happy Leap Day!
I hope you enjoy this 'extra' day.
Ours began around 5:00am with a Flash of Lightening, a Crack of Thunder, and...Snow!
This is a cruddy picture - does not do the stitch justice.
Tuesday night while watching N.C.I.S. I began stitching A Needle and Fred's "Three Hearts". I love it. I love the fabric - 28 count Lavender Sunset Jobelan. I love the structure of the design. I love the border pattern. I think I'll crank out this baby quickly.
For the second week in a row my 'Wednesday Walk' has been postponed due to weather. Yesterday morning a storm rolled in - pummelling rain and lashing wind. The cats I decided it was best spent as an Indoor Day. Today may be yet another "Inside Day" as it is snowing.
So I'll share a few recent Bird Photos.
This Junco was getting a drink from our Large Fountain.
This guy was my Monday Surprise!
A male Evening Grosbeak spent 30 minutes or so at the feeders.
I heard him 'churring' out in the forest on and off the remainder of the day.
Grosbeaks are generally Spring / Summer visitors for us. I haven't seen one since late November - click here for the post.
More Juncos - cuz' they're so easy to photograph!
A little Song Sparrow awaiting her turn at the feeder.
The Towhee was not about to cede to the Sparrow.
I know, another Junco - but isn't this one so cute and fluffy?
Don't you want to pet it?
Probably no one wants to pet my group of seven Turkey Vultures. They too hung around for most of the day Monday.
