Fresh PEI-grown tulips!
Well, we are past the half-way mark in January as it plods along and things are still pretty quiet. I haven't been snow shoeing the past week but I have been getting 'out' in the fresh air as we looked after our grand-dogs on the weekend. And, I've been shovelling snow from the decks. ;-) We had about 2 cm of snow on Saturday from the 'big storm' that was supposed to hit but drifted east and hit Nova Scotia instead. It is clear sailing for us the rest of this week with no snow in sight - just cold and sunshine.
A sunrise last week the day after the 38cm. snowstorm. Love the blue and coral together.
While at our son's on Sunday we got a fire going in the wood stove to warm the house up for their return from snowmobiling.
A pretty lane through the old orchard.
The "Wedding Trees" planted nearly 50 years ago by Murray's father and where our daughter and son-in-law were married in 2008.
I caught these three deer on the hill yesterday afternoon. There are lots of deer tracks in our yard and I noticed yesterday, driving along our road, that every single yard and field had deer tracks through them. Today I had to stop twice on one road near here to let deer cross. Murray wondered aloud what time the deer pass through the yard in the night. I don't always look out if I'm up in the night as it is too cold to roam around the house barefoot in the dark, but it has me curious too.
What's been happening in your neck of the woods? Are you snowed under or enjoying balmy temperatures and sunshine?
Are you glued to Downton Abbey once a week? I just finished season 4 on Netflix and will have to wait for season 5 then 6 to come out.
Birds feeding during a snowstorm last week.
I've been bird watching in the backyard all winter. We have had chickadees, goldfinches, American tree sparrows, blue jays and a red squirrel. There have been lots of sightings of Snowy Owls along the Northumberland Strait coast recently and I've never ever seen an owl in the wild. Have you? I did see this one at our son's yesterday. It is perched on a fence post next to the garden to keep unwanted birds out. LOL
I don't think this is a rare owl.
Thanks so much for your visits and comments. I'm spending less time on here blogging it seems but try to visit here and there when I can. I hope you all have a beautiful week ahead. Stay Warm!!
