For The Birds!

For the birds!  That's what this weather is.  I think winter just loves Minnesota a bit too much this year.  How can we miss winter if it won't Go Away??  Oh, that's right, we won't miss it at all.

I looked out this morning, and I saw 2 beautiful cardinals in the tree.  I do have to admit they looked beautiful in the snowy branches.  I wanted to snap a picture of them, but of course they were gone by the time I came back with my camera.  I did take quite a few other photos of birds.  I will share how lovely they looked on this April morning.

I do want to thank you for your kind words about my little accident last week.  I am feeling much better.  I can't wait to get my stitches out in a couple of days.  My finger is still sore and a bit swollen, but hopefully it will be back to normal very soon.  I still have a hideous bruise on my thigh, but my arm no longer looks hideous and that's a very good thing. Thanks for your concern and well wishes.

Now, enjoy the birds....








In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.

Love the pictures, but so sorry for the SNOW. Can't believe it really snowed in April! Guess that is MN! Here in TX we are having fires from the lack of rain, high winds and dry grass. :(

So glad you are feeling better from your accident!!!!

I am with you on this one. Took my daughter back to college and hit lightning, thunder, and hail. The sky was darker than it was at 7:00 tonight yet it was 9:30 in the morning. Crazy!
