Time Fugits

It's been a long time since I posted, but as they say........

 Time flies like and arrow; fruit flies like a banana (Groucho Marx)

This rather lonely cardinal has been hanging around lately.  I think he's a young male, looking for a lady friend.  It's nice to see birds around.  We didn't have many this winter.  I think it was because there was so little snow that they found plenty to eat in the woods.

We can hear the birds in the woods; it's mating season! 


Finally the weather has been warm enough to start opening the pond and pool.  This is what we call the Dribble Fountain.    The little frog sat on the water table for the better part of the day.  Everyone enjoys a warm, sunny spring day!


I bought pansies, delphinium and another columbine yesterday.  Today is cloudy with a little drizzle and mist, perfect for planting!


I've been busy in the studio making more whistles, but mostly cleaning.  There is a reason it's called Spring Cleaning.  Even after this mild winter we need a lot of it!

Enjoy your week end wherever you are.  Hope my down below friends are not too cold yet!

As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*

  5. Hi Gary.....I'm wondering if I have to knit tiny sweaters for the goldfish!
    Did you get snow? My relatives in Vermont and New Hampshire got up to eight inches.
    Stay warm!
