 The view from our kitchen window is breath taking, we had a very wet snow yesterday, about 3 inches and everything is covered in white, every tree branch as far as I can see into the woods is coated-- it is like the world has been given a heavy dusting of powdered sugar. It is quite cold, only in the single digits and will be remain that way for the several days. It doesn't appear that it will be above freezing for the next week. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!

 Hubby was able to put out his larger bird feeder this morning and already the birds are flocking to the feeder. I also had a large jar of spanish peanuts that have been in the pantry for much too long, the furry critters are enjoying them. It is fun to watch them from my kitchen window.

 The backyard feeder has been very busy of late with the Winter/Spring like weather we are having, so many birds and on  the feeder and one of my favorite is a beautiful red headed woodpecker--he really stands out with his brilliant red hood--several cardinals have been feeding the last week or so.

It has been rainy and cloudy and a bit chilly, in the 60's. This morning I went to make my coffee and opened up the front curtain to a mama and daddy ducks in my front yard. Mama was nibbling and rolling around in my chives, which are about six inches tall now, while dad stood watch. I'm hoping they stick around to nest!

          Last week end I decided to mow "just a small area to cut up some twigs" and ended up mowing for about 3 hours. This morning when I looked out of the windows I was so glad I did, the grass has really  greened up due to the recent rains. We received 1 inch last night. The trees in the orchard are beginning to bloom and a Redbud tree that I planted for my Hubby several years ago is showing a pretty purple hue, now if we don't get any sudden freezes, it will be beautiful.

It is cloudy and cool (almost cold) and a slight breeze.  We are supposed to have thunderstorms late tonight.  Hubby is trying to gear up to mow our front lawn but hasn't gotten there yet.  We have a anywhere from 1 to 4 inches in the area this past week.  Of course there is flooding in all the suspect areas.  But everything has greened up.
