It ‘s nice to see the cardinals and other birds have arrived and the singing high in the branches of this tree is such a welcomed sight.

First Day of Spring and Lots of Snow

Yesterday was the 1st day of Spring but Mother Nature did not cooperate. She proceeded to drop 7 inches of snow on our already snow covered yard.

This morning it is still lightly snowing. Will we see crocuses this Spring? I rather doubt it. The ground still has mounds of snow and April will be here in two weeks.

The animals are in a dire straight as far as food is concerned. The hawks are circling overhead in search of prey. Three houses away from ours a bobcat was photographed walking in the backyard in search of food. We are in a suburban residential Connecticut area and this is highly unusual. Coyotes have been seen scouting many backyards.

Oh, Spring hurry and arrive!!

Soon We Will See Flowers Again

Spring is due to arrive within days. The header on this blog depicts lovely colors of orange and yellow.

Birds are already chirping and brown spots can be seen on lawns.

I’m sure the crocuses cannot wait to push their little heads through the soil. It will be a pleasure to sell color again.

Hopefully we won’t see snow again until next year.

“The Cat in the Castle” Published by Alfie Dog

Alfie Dog Publications has an unlimited number of short stories to download. If you’re looking for children’s stories you should really check out their site. (www.alfiedog). The cost is minimal to download.

Perhaps your child might like an old fashioned fairy tale. I’ve written one “The Cat in the Castle” which I’m sure your child will love.

Victoria, a princess, was afraid of mice. She was so afraid that she never came out of her bedroom. – See more at: http://alfiedog.com/fiction/stories/pat-st-pierre-authors/#sthash.4uigyaep.dpuf

Another Connecticut Snow Day

DSC_1165We started the day at around 4 degrees but we ended by with a heavenly warm day of 36 degrees.

It was beautiful shoveling in the warm sunshine and also to see the icicles  go from 3 feet to 3 inches.

Tonight we will have low temperatures again but for today it was heavenly.

Sunset Above the Snow

The Northeast has been bombarded with snow the last few weeks. Temperatures have been extremely low and winds have been blowing soft snow everywhere.

Winter Sunset

Winter Sunset

The other night as the sun was setting in our back yard I captured this lovely sunset.

It reminded me of summer evenings. Warmer weather can’t come soon enough.
