17th March 2022 Morning frustration left me feeling decidedly grumpy. As human beings, we all make mistakes. Forget things, overlook something, become confused... it can happen to everyone now and then. Admitting mistakes is something I have never had a problem with. But I have always been organized. I carry a date book and when … Continue reading Appointments
19th March 2022 A couple of late arrivals flying in to join the massed reunion of migrating birds. The excited chattering alerted us to the assembly yesterday morning, but toward the end of the day Grant called me outside to witness: Red-wings and grackles and the occasional sparrow These are the moments when I long … Continue reading Daily Red
0625/5th March 2022 Even if we get late snow, our landscape will soon be different as trees begin to sprout. While I regret the passing of winter, I know the re-awakening land will hold new delight. The patio is clear for the Breakfast Club. Some weeks ago, I went to see the new psychiatrist I … Continue reading Side-effects

Changing weather is never good for achy bodies. With the ups and downs we have been experiencing, I have … Continue reading Distractions
19th February 2022 Can you find the Indian elephant in this post? . There may be a short delay to my recent proclamation of an early Spring. Witness photographic evidence of yesterday's predicted "snow flurries". Yes, 4 inches of them. Juncos had to dig for seed. They all show up when it snows, hence their … Continue reading Flurries
0823/18th February 2022 There is just no keeping up with this winter. Rising at our normal time yesterday, we looked out on a damp and muddy, brown and gloomy sight that I had no desire to photograph. Ten minutes later, winter returned. Which cheered me immensely. It also caused something else to happen. Grant peered … Continue reading Happy, sad…
0649/6th February 2022 "Willow's just walked by with a mouse" said Grant as I was finishing my tea. Always a good start to the day. With nothing of note to photograph, I've gone back a few days.
