OUR SPRING WEATHER IS SLOWLY EVOLVING
SPRING IS THE TIME OF DAFFODILS
Of course the first thing I checked to see this morning was if my bird feeder station was intact....and it was. We'll see what happens over the next few nights. Below are some photos I took last Spring of an early evening invader in our front yard!!!!
Kelly had mentioned about having a shelf put in the bottom of our coat closet so this morning that was my mission. Only had a couple days to finish that up before she gets home from Spencerport NY early Wednesday afternoon.
OUR LATE BLOOMING TULIPS ARE FINALLY COMING OUT
Should have taken the Motorcycle for a ride this afternoon but I lapsed into kind of funk & with recent events I just have to be patient with myself knowing this pall of sadness will pass.
A BIG BLUE HERON LIFTS OFF THE MORNING POND
Sure enjoy sitting here in our sunroom at the desktop computer watching all the bird antics in our front yard these days. I can be typing something & then just lose my train of thought & idle away the time watching the many birds. By early evening the bunny rabbits venture out & our pond's Peeper frogs begin their melodic harmonies.
AND THIS IS WHERE I LIKE TO SIT AT THE COMPUTER & WATCH THE BIRDS IN OUR FRONT YARD.....(FILE PIC FROM MAY 19/10)
I like the night because it is the time when all is quiet. Lawn mowers aren't hammering & leaf blowers aren't screaming. All the Park's residents have returned inside their homes. A quiet peace descends on our Park as night falls. It is my favorite time of day. Oh how I miss the night walks Max & I used to take down the starlit dusty country road every night when we lived in the old farm house years ago. So many great memories under so many wondrous starry skies.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( An astronomer is on an expedition to Africa to observe a total eclipse of the sun, which will only be observable there, when he's captured by cannibals. The eclipse is due the next day around noon. To gain his freedom he plans to pose as a god and threaten to extinguish the sun if he's not released, but the timing has to be just right. So, in the few words of the cannibals' tongue that he knows, he asks his guard what time they plan to kill him.
The guard answers, "Tradition has it that captives are to be killed when the sun reaches the highest point in the sky on the day after their capture so that they may be cooked and ready to be served for the evening meal".
"Great", the astronomer replies.
The guard continues, "But because everyone's so excited about it, in your case we're going to wait until after the eclipse."
