I've planned my spring vegetable garden and have ordered my seeds. I've ordered the baby chicks for arrival the first week in April. So even though we are still officially in winter, spring is truly just around the corner.
We've started to see and hear the birds migrating - mostly geese so far. Our wild birds have been enjoying the easy food and water that we keep on the back deck.
Buddy has matured into a great watchdog. He patrols our little ranch at night and oftentimes corners a possum or a raccoon which creates all sorts of nighttime racket. He has done a great job keeping our place clean of critters and safe for the birds, both domestic and wild.
and almost ready to fall off...
The bluebirds in the tree are waiting their turn in the birdbath.
It's still windy, blustery, and cold but the birds are singing and checking out the birdhouses and seeming to be pairing up. Can spring be far behind?
I'm trying to enjoy each season as it comes and be patient for the next to arrive. At this time of year, it is hard to do this. I can look out the window and 'see' in my minds eye what spring has in store and frankly, I can't wait!
