Ahead


For once I am actually ahead with things. Bunnies are made for Easter already, so I can scratch that off the list. It's not often that I manage to get so far ahead. I often start off with good intentions and planning. But something comes along that has to be done right now, and all my plans go into disarray. For now though I will just enjoy being ahead while it lasts.
.
I am not the only one that is ahead. Mother Nature has given us the most incredible winter this year. Everything is at least six weeks ahead of schedule. During our weekend walk, (to which I might add I even took off my coat because I got to warm) we spotted these little flowers blooming. I was so happy to see them as I know that the little hummingbirds can't be to far behind. These are one of the first flowers they feed on after coming back to our area.
This lovely little bird sang his little heart out, just for us of course. I think he was enjoying the nice warm day too.
Of course not everything is peaceful and serene. There was a whole lot of squabbling going on as the geese all vie for the best nesting spots. My goodness they do make a racket! Hubby has a new more powerful lens for his camera so he was having a grand time taking photo's.

After today's morning rain we have another incredible week of sun and mild temperatures. So a lot of walking and garden tidying will be in the works. Sorry all you people that are still knee deep in snow with more coming. Hopefully my little post today will bring a little sunshine into your day.

Have a lovely Tuesday!

Wow, you're done with Easter? I haven't even found out when Easter is yet! You're amazing.

Things are all budding and blooming up here too, it's incredible. What a lucky year for me to have moved to Washington, eh?

I'm so happy to see some of your little bunnies. I've missed you critters. We're still in winter here. More snow today and very cold.

The photo of the goose is amazing! It's great you are able to do a bit of walking again after your painful back experience. I hope you are feeling much better now. x

Lovely bunnies - Easter if my favorite holiday - just something about spring, bunnies, jelly beans - so refreshing and less stressful than Christmas. Your pictures are grand - I am surprised you have had such a mild winter - even here in Texas we have had much colder weather than normal and even snow which is usually unheard of this far south!

Hi Kathy, how lovely that you have some nice weather, it really does you good to see Spring is on the way. Of course here we have thick frost on the ground and maybe more snow later - what is it with this country we don't get snow for years and then like buses they all come at once!
The rabbits are beautiful! Hope your back is feeling much better.

Your rabbits are the cutest! Love that photo of the goose too. It's an incredible picture. I do remember how noisy they are though.

Your rabbits are adorable! Lent started yesterday, so you are six weeks ahead of schedule, the same as those cute little flowers! Your husband has a terrific camera! I love seeing his photos!
