How lucky we are!
My goodness how lucky we are to have such a terrific winter. Spring is already all around us. I even spruced up the front porch with some new cushion covers and a pot of hyacinths and daffodils. It is a wonderful place to sit and soak up the sun while I am knitting.
Of course with the great weather we took our usual walk down at the wildlife refuge. We didn't have to go far before we came across some beautiful creatures. First pic is of a Great Blue Heron. Sitting so still just soaking up the sun. A little further down the trail we came across....... this little Downy Woodpecker. He was going up and down the tree poking holes wherever he went.
To our delight once again, the Great Horned Owls have returned. We were thrilled to see them. Last year they had two babies and we are hoping that they will have young again this year. Our next little critter was a complete surprise. He is a little hard to see but you can make out his head. It is a Beaver just about to dive under the water. Hubby just managed to snap the pic before he disappeared. We could not believe how lucky we were to see so many little creatures in just a short amount of time.
There is just one more little critter that desperately wanted to show himself. Unfortunately he couldn't find his other shoe...or his pants! He is hoping that in a day or two they will show up and he can come on by and say hello!
See you soon!
