I'm happy to turn the calendar page over to March today! Will it come in like a lion or a lamb? I guess we'll see!
It is coming in with a bloom in my garden! I was so happy to see this pretty crocus yesterday -
I did like these special visitors that February brought to our yard. Over several different days we had a bunch of these tiny birds - called bushtits - flitting in and out of the trees and congregating on our suet feeders - sometimes 8 - 10 at a time!
They moved so quickly that neither Mike nor I could get a good picture of them, so the one above is from my favorite birding website, All About Birds. They are only about 3 inches long!
Then yesterday, in the early morning, when the birds usually start to be really active, there were none of our usual birds around, except for a blue jay who was really making a ruckus. When I looked out the window to see where he was, I spotted this guy!
A beautiful Great Horned Owl!
Mike grabbed his camera and went right out in his bathrobe to get these photos! These owls are about 22 inches long (or is it "tall?") Probably the biggest bird we've ever seen in our yard!
Queen Elizabeth has been visiting us every evening, lol!
We've liked watching Season 2 of "The Crown." I especially enjoy seeing their clothing and the upper crust British accents!
I like my current read, The Alice Network. I love historical fiction set in WWI or II, so this one is right up my alley! Women who are spies in France during WWI -
I've liked making some progress on my current quilty WiP - my son's Yellow Brick Road quilt. I got it basted yesterday and am now working on the quilting. Looking forward to finishing this one up!
I hope you're having a great week! As always, I'm joining in with I Like Thursday over at Not Afraid of Color!
