Coming from a little blogging hiatus, I am a little at a loss about what to post. It had been a busy two weeks – there were the trip to Montreal and then the Holy week and Easter. Since it is till Easter time, allow me to greet you all a Happy Easter. :-)
Meanwhile, inspite of winter’s reluctance to leave, Spring is well and kicking. The flowers are out ….
This is one of the first two dandelions in our yard.
I am glad that the Narcissus was planted away from where April rains pool in the backyard.
I realized that Forsythia is my least favorite spring flower. However, it is still great to see them in bloom.
…. and so are the animals.
I did not even have to walk less than a mile to the pond to see Mallards. Last Friday afternoon, after sunset, I chanced upon these pair of Mallards swimming in the flood in our backyard. While the April rains wrought havoc in our basement, specifically on our water heater which needs to be replaced now, they brought floods that these two found good enough for their needs. The flood was not all bad then. :-)
This squirrel finally had some fare aside from the nuts it collected in the Fall.
The cheerful Robins have joined the Sparrows and Starlings in the backyard. Beware, summer berries.
These two robins caught my attention because one moment they were friends, then they were quarreling the next. On second thoughts, they could be Mr. and Mrs. Robin. :-)
It was not only the world that is having spring. I noticed that this page got some new friends while I was away. Thank you and welcome to all. Your presence is much appreciated. :-) To you friends, old and new, I promise to catch up with your posts soon. :-)
Happy Easter to all.
