Outside my Window ~ Time Marches On



Nature always wears the colors of the spirit....
Ralph Waldo Emerson 

It's been a super busy week here and I apologize to all who I didn't get around to visiting.  I miss reading all my favorite blogger's posts...but I will try and catch up today. 

and now it's time for another random week round-up with
Nancy 

4 photos & a news flash...

Top left....That's a horse's patootie and random floating visitors at the pond. (the stripe should tell you it's Little Man)  I hollered at him to move, but like I said..he was being a horse's patootie. 

Snow piles on my Texas Sage..beautiful purple toned sky in the background 

This is a feeder that I don't use..never could get the birds to eat from it.   
It wasn't sleeting- but a cold rain with temps in the low 30s -
froze everything over

Shake it off Mr Hawk...poor thing, 
he needs a de-icing. 



don't look now,but....
today, the sun is shining 
&
I see 
GREEN 


sprouting in my yard. 
I do. 
I promise.
(This shot is SOOC  just a few minutes ago!!) 

Little itty bitty tiny blades of wonderful, beautiful, gorgeous 
GREEN 
probably weeds
but I don't care
it's 
GREEN !!!

  5. Great photos! A lovely variety of nature's beauty. I looked at the weather forecast and I think I actually saw a 60 deg. F. on one of those days. Maybe it will help to melt all this snow we had last night :)

  6. It snowed here today - not sure how much. Spring will have to wait a bit.

  7. I love your photos, too. It's been a crazy winter for most of the country. It's been mild here and we're seeing signs of Spring here, too! Enjoy your evening my friend!

  8. Love your shot of the snow covered sage bush....and poor hawk. I always wonder how the birds make it through the cold weather. Even our grackles down here in Texas that are such a problem are getting my sympathy now....this bitter cold coupled with wet weather has to be cold on them! It's wonderful that you can still find beauty in your world to photograph!

  12. We got a lot of snow yesterday and today, so no green for us. By the time March rolls around, I know I will be glad to see it though. I love the photo of Little Man with the ducks! Happy Valentine's Day!

  35. I was here earlier today but loading [even my own blog also] was very slow, so if I already left a comment forgive me, I'm trying to catch up on visiting.

    Love the images shared...I think that's a Cooper's Hawk. It's so very gorgeous.

  39. Wonderful images, love the duck and horse's patootie. And the Hawk looks a little wet there, great sighting. We have a lot of snow here to melt before we see any green, I wish it would all go away! Thank you for linking up to Saturday's Critters. Have a happy weekend!

  44. So love your interesting collection of photos. Referring to your last photo, just ordinary green grass can look so good after a spell of bad weather and the sun shines on it. Your bird feeder is enchanting.

  48. "Mr. Hawk needs a de-icing" - you are too cute. That made me smile. :)
    Green grass - seriously - I have had snow on the ground now for 14 consecutive days. No chance of green here anytime soon.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Blogger is messing with my comment.
    Love the reference to de-icing - too funny!
    I can't believe you have green grass. I've had snow on the ground for 14 days straight!
