Spring Is For The Birds

Although it is officially Spring, the weather has been cold and dreary here.  Snowflakes, freezing drizzle and endless days of clouds.  It has fit the mood in our house as we still find ourselves mourning the loss of our sweet Boxer, Daphne.  We know the days will be brighter ahead and the forecast for the upcoming week shows promise with 50 degree days and peeks of sunshine.  We also had some good news on Friday…Sebastian made the high school JV baseball team.  He will be busy with 6:30 am practices during the week and Saturday games out-of-town.  We are very excited for him as we know how hard he has been working to prepare for tryouts.  We look forward to cheering him on during the weeks ahead.

Our backyard has been busy with finches, chickadees and even an occasional cardinal. This house finch was hanging out on our grapevine this afternoon awaiting his turn at the bird feeder.  A bright spot on an otherwise gloomy day.

  1. HI Mary and Mike, I wasn’t able to comment on last weeks post. I am so sorry for your loss of your dog. The story was great and the pictures beautiful as always. Gini

  2. Hi: May you have lovely spring days ahead. Been busy with Rob Laurie and Luke here this week. Visited the desert museum which is so wonderful and went to Canyon Lake for a super boat ride. And so much more! Birding is also a priority! Nadine
