What we saw.....

driving around the block. (Be advised--this is a country block of about 5 miles)

Everything is sooooo brown--hopefully color will begin to show itself soon, although it is supposed to snow on Monday.
The geese are back and making their nests.
Red-winged blackbirds are everywhere for about the past week and a half.
A very handsome mallard duck
The turkeys are strutting about.
This is our favorite spot to see great-blue herons, green herons and an assortment of ducks. Today it was all about Canadian geese.
And the drives big excitement was Mark catching these white-tail deer in a picture.
Great shot, Mark!!
After we got home we just hung around outside.
The temperature reached the mid-60's today, sunny and just beautiful.
We planted a few marigold seeds to grow indoors. You don't plant anything outside around here until about mid May.
We took a walk in the fields out back and Gracie spotted a bird nest from last year.
We were searching for pussywillows, but it is still too early to find any---we only found things the color brown.
We did spot a few monkies up a tree when we got home.
Usually we have young monkies hanging around, but today we even spotted some OLD monkies!!

Wonderful nature shots. Nice job on getting the photo of the deer. It looks like it was a beautiful day. Our weather here is slowly warming up. It has been so nice.
