Hello Spring

Hi there,

Yesterday was the first day of spring. And late last week three feet of snow fell; it will be awhile before we see blossoms like these, but, hey, a girl can dream. The good news: each day brings with it twelve hours of daylight.

A snowy white world.
Recently, I was hanging out at a bird feeder, but most of the birds were too fast for me and my camera. Since I can't take pictures with gloves on, my hands were freezing but I enjoyed watching my feathered friends.

The robins have arrived and they look bewildered because of the snow. I saw two pecking at old berries. If the temps stay above zero, hopefully the snow will melt soon and they can get to the business of feeding on succulent worms. In the meantime, they could use some help. As far as I know they will eat raisins, apple slices, berries and the pet stores should have meal worms for sale.

A Starling tries to get a big mouthful of seeds. Obviously, he thinks he can snip the wires with his beak, or maybe he's just angry because he's hungry.


I emailed a few photos and a photo of a painting off to Vistaprint to have stickers and this calendar made. Not quite the calendar I had in mind, but it will do for this year. In case you are thinking of getting stickers ( not shown) made from photos, the high gloss are very nice.

The mess on the desk. Yes, I've been drawing aliens too. Meet Srinda and Zelgog.
Apparently radio signals have been coming in from a certain area in the Milky Way. Speculation is rife. So far I've heard it may be from a neutron star (Hence the star in my cartoon drawing), stellar bursts, etc. etc. Further speculation:  the signals may be from a planet in the Goldilocks zone ( not too hot, or to cold).  All that info made my head hurt and drove me to doodle aliens. :^)

And . . . from yours truly.

Cultivate a dream.
Thanks for reading along.  Have a lovely week . . .

Wandering Camera for January


Imagine that. After a quiet month, two post in less than a week. I can't believe it!

A year has past since the Wandering Camera link party began over on Soma's blog Whims and Fancies.  I've had fun linking up and wandering around the world looking at the link party participants wonderful  photos. A big thank you to my lovely and wonderful friend, Soma for hosting.


   
We were out for a chilly December walk in the bird sanctuary. Ten minutes into the walk, I was wishing I'd worn my ski pants. But intrepid travelers move on, hopefully without too much whining. 😇

Bare trees showing off their character in the moonlight.
Inside blossoms and greenery. For me, beautiful necessities that brighten up the winter months.
                          I finished knitting the Violet Cap, and I shipped it off to it's owner. The colour                              is not spot on. My camera tells tales.




Animal tracks. Top one may be a porcupine. Any ideas? I'll must check with a woodsman I know.

Bottom track ~ a deer with places to go.


Red squirrel out to forage in the sunshine. We left him a lot of peanuts. Hopefully he stuffed his storage vaults because spring is not in the air.

A heart warmer. 💖
                                  

                                                    Doodles ~ Key People. I may paint these.



 
Here's to all of you! 

A cup of Matcha. These days it's almost a daily ritual.  

Enjoy...

What a Difference...

                      What a difference a very hot week makes. (Above 30C or 86F.) Look at those trees!
When I took this picture, it was blowing a whole-sail breeze as my Mother would say (we are Maritime folks),  so the pic looks a little fuzzy because I forgot to tun up the shutter speed.


In the woods, a trillium carpet.

I am working on two courses, plus a seascape painting for someone and two of birds, so it's mostly a picture post day.

But before I go I'd like to shout out a hearty welcome to my new followers. A big thank you for following along via Google friend connect and email, etc.

Do have a lovely week!
