All my days

The snow is completely gone – not a trace of it left anywhere in the yard – not even the cold, dark places on the north side of the house. I wish that it hadn’t snowed, that school hadn’t been closed.  There is now one day less to complete everything that needs to be done before I walk out the door on Friday and start our Spring Break.

Took some photos from the window yesterday and generally didn’t do much of anything. I knew I’d be running around all week, making up for it.

She is pretty.

And so are her wings.

I opened the back door yesterday because I heard something out there. Thousands and thousands of birds were chirping as the snow came down. They were all in the top branches of the trees.

The snow continued to fall until 5 pm, and the more it fell, the less it stuck to the ground. It snowed all day long, but we had more snow on the ground when I woke up than we did at 5 pm.




Honestly . . . I would much rather be seeing this . . .



 

And this . . .

I found these images on Pinterest. You can’t rush the seasons, though. And so, I am resigned to wait.

 

Meanwhile, heard this tune on a television commercial for (I believe) Sprint. I looked it up and it sounds very much like Nick Drake. I like it a lot.

Hope your week is a good one. I adjusted the comments so that self-hosted bloggers can use the comment form. This whole spam thing is driving me nuts. Apologies if you’ve been trying to leave a comment and have gotten nowhere.

What a beautiful song this is, Kate!

Glad the snow did not hang around. We had a storm warning, but then it missed us completely. For that, I am thankful! Maybe it won't be long before we see some flowers.

Wishing you a wonderful evening!

Love the flight shot.

Fell in love with Alexi Murdoch's tunes after watching "Away We Go" several years ago. Great movie, great music.

beth said...

did you see the movie "once?" that's where that song is from. i've had it on my playlist for years....as the movie was that good. now i hope it's on yours, too....

and today, a heatwave here.....42 degrees.

your spring break....it's almost here :)

beth said...

beth said...

yep....brain fart. chrissy is right...and did you see that movie...OMG, the part that is shot in/as madison....oh lord, we laughed so hard.

anyhow, BOTH of those movies are fantastic. i hope you see/have seen both of them :)

Pink! The color of spring. It just can't be that far away temperature wise. (Can it?)

mrs mediocrity said...

I finally resigned myself to the waiting as well. The sun has been out, and that really helps. I am loving your birds in flight!

Flat Creek Farm said...

Beautiful, as always. Our more recent snow is starting to leave, and now we (Missouri) are told there is a chance for snow on April 1. Really? We are not amused. I adore your birds on the wing! And the Spring glimpses, of course :)

Mental P Mama said...

Love that song. He is great. And thanks for the Pinterest fix!

Kerri said...

Oh those wings........ Fabulous!

Nellie said...

Beautiful picture of that cardinal!

We've had snow off and on for the past couple of days, with no accumulation. Very rare here at this time of year!

Here's hoping the rest of your week will go smoothly! You will really be ready for spring break!

Carolynn Anctil said...

Such a beautiful bird! *sigh* I wish our snow would disappear as quickly. I'm afraid we're in for a long, slow spring with lots of water & mud. Ick.

(By the way, my birthday present arrived today. *grin* I absolutely love my little cardinal. I've wanted to bring her home for a very long time and am so very pleased.)

Blessings,
Carolynn

Love the birds in the tree photo and the song. I don't often have time to listen to blogger's music attachments but I'm really glad I did this time.

Country Gal said...

Lovely photos ! Our trees have been full of birds the ever so pain in the butt Starlings like that here to and boy are they noisy but I still like hearing them . Lovely video . No snow here anymore the temps are warming up both in the day and at night now . Have a good day .

Deltaville Jamie said...

Love the photos. I always thought the female cardinal was much prettier than her mate. Love the song too! We're expecting upper 50's this weekend over in my part of MD... I'm so ready for spring!

Daryl said...

thotlady said...

It was 27 this AM in Jackson.....good grief!

Nancy Claeys said...

I saw our Mrs. Cardinal for the first time this spring a couple of days ago -- they are so pretty!

Love that painted bike you found on Pinterest -- I'm going to try to find an old bike at a thrift this year to do the same thing! :)

The Weaver of Grass said...

Lovely bird photos as usual. You are lucky that your snow has gone. We still have twenty centimetres here in the UK and it is snowing as I write this and there is a bitter easterly wind blowing - Typical Easter.

Cindy said...

Beautiful photo of the Cardinal and I love the wing shot.

Cathy said...

isn't that just the best commercial? i read that the father took the photos of his daughter. i love, love your photos. and thanks for posting the song.

Stephen Andrew said...

Love your bird photography so much. What incredible patience you must have to capture these shots. I'd be out there with my camera screaming obscenities in no time haha.

JC said...

Love the birds in the tree. They do that in my woods too only not as many as you had.

We think they are having a meeting of some sort.

I changed my comments so annonymous can't do it. Now, I don't get those anymore. That one day I got over fifty .. crazy.

Are you going or doing anything fun for Spring break ?

Funny how that is .. my son was home from college three weeks ago. My other friends son has his this week.

xo,
JC

Debra R said...

Thanks much for fixing the comment issue. I tried to comment a few times, then gave up. I so wanted to tell you I love your bird pics. They are stunning! You are incredibly talented.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Your female cardinal in the snow is so very good! I know you're tired of snow, but it's such a novelty here that I never tire of seeing these kinds of photos. I do hope you get springlike weather very soon.

Sabrina said...

I love those little spring photos you found on Pinterest! Especially love that pink-painted bike.

I must pin them to my own pinboard.

forgetmenot said...

Spring is just around the corner--can't wait to see the flowers in bloom and green grass. It's hard to find anything very "pretty" to photograph these days. Love your pretty cardinal though. Happy Easter, my friend. Mickie :)

Helene Titsch said...

As usual, loving your photos and thoughts. Sorry to say, I'm not really ready for spring. Maybe, when all the crazy stuff in my life is done with, I will breathe and it will be spring...or maybe summer...yikes!

For the best-sampling mug of coffee, usually grind your own espresso in your house proper before you are able to brew. Pick a grinding machine that creates a moderate grind. Well terrain coffee could be bitter and coarsely soil gourmet coffee is generally poor. Typically, burr caffeine grinders are superior to blade grinders in creating the right structure.
