This morning as I stood by the window snapping a few pics, I noticed that the plumage of our little American Goldfinches is already starting to brighten a bit. Although, it may just be wishful thinking on my part.
Off in the distance I heard the familiar sound of our chainsaw and decided to bring my camera outside while I caught up to Henri. It was surprisingly mild and so I took a little look around dreaming of when I may get back into the garden.
These dewy branches are the last remains of the dusting of snow we received late last night.
During our walk today, it was a little hazy looking across Frenchman's Bay where I noticed there was still a faint bit of snow left on the mountains of Acadia. I never tire of this view.
Back at home, another birdie serves as sentinel to my tiny backyard greenhouse that I am just itching to get back into.
A little reminder to me that as gentle as the Winter has been so far, it would behoove me to not let my guard down quite yet. Nevertheless, the softening ground had me eager to get back into my rubber boots.
