April 19, 2011 (92/365)


So happy to have time at home this week, it's Spring Break. Lot's of birds posing for me yesterday. It was fun to have something to shoot again.
And .. yes that is snow. We started out all green in the morning - then had about 3-4 hours of heavy wet snow, which melted about an hour later. So this morning I wake to green again.

So many complain about the snow this time of year. I am tired of it as well, in the sense that my son has now had 4 baseball games cancelled so far - but it is what it is ... April! I do live in Western New York!! Good things come to those who wait, and well... we sure hope it will be an awesome spring and summer to follow what seems to be a very long winter season.

I love the variety of birds that are back, I even saw a goldfinch wearing it's bright yellow colors yesterday! Certainly a sign that the snow will not last forever!

Hi Valerie, How are you? Know that you will enjoy Spring Break... Hope your hubby is doing okay now.

Love that Cardinal... Great picture and words. This week I had a male and female Cardinal on one of my feeders. He was feeding her... Love is definitely in bloom.

Hope your snow goes away SOON.
Hugs,
Betsy

What a lovely cardinal in his finest! Yes, we're tired of our snow too, but thankful that we've been spared all kinds of other natural disasters - and not because we're deserving of being spared! The way April has been we'll have sprummerall - springsummerfall - all rolled into one and then it will snow again, LOL!!
