What a treat Friday morning was! Already we were hearing stories of the wintery blast that was going to be coming for us in waves throughout the weekend, so when the cardinal song awoke me and I found that the forecasted fifty degrees for the day was well on its way to being a reality, I was pretty quick to take advantage of the conditions.
First order was to turn down the heat and open up some windows and let a bit of fresh air (and all that delightful bird song) waft through the apartment. You can be sure that my Gray Companion was quick to discover the open windows and happily squeezed himself onto narrow window sills for a bit of sniffing and bird watching.
For my part, I’d been jonesing for a walk out there in the world, but the recent Head Cold of Doom had combined with some chilly temperatures and I just hadn’t been able to talk myself into it. So here was a morning I could sink my teeth into…and without needing half a dozen layers of clothing to keep me properly warm, either!
Sunshine and warmth and birdsong were the signs of spring here. Except for a few daffodils beginning to poke up through the ground here and there around town, I haven’t seen any flowers out there yet. But birds and sun were more than enough for me. I don’t have much else to say about the walk, except it was pretty wonderful (and much faster going without all that snow and ice on the ground).
I’ll let the photos speak for me.
