Spring is here!

Sunday I spent a fair amount of time sitting in our "new"  swing!
My father made it years ago, when we had nowhere to put it.
Silly me...I forgot it was mine! We're so happy to have it out back.
Heather Sheep came out of the barn, and we put out our Easter flag.

Monday was a happy day...I found blooming things!
 Dear Galanthus, I am very happy to see you!
 And you, too, Eranthis!

 Oh how you cheer my frozen soul

 I came home to find Mr. Finch singing his heart out!
 And Mr. Downy came by to see me
 Mr. Cardinal and Mr. Finch met for dinner

 Ms. Cardinal just shook her head...men! They didn't even invite her over.
 Yes, you ARE the pretty bird! A Louisville fan, no doubt...
Robins are very thankful for thawed ground!
 Lonesome Mourning dove...lonesome because another dove shooed him away.
 On Friday I surprised part of the campus herd!
 I love how the flash reflects in their eyes...it was a dreary morning.
 Going to the Student Center for coffee, I'll bet...
 These geese are ready for baseball season!
 More deer...they posed for me!
 A Facebook friend suggested that these may represent three generations of does.

Ubiquitous Canada Geese...glad to have open water on our ponds!

It is Springtime in central Ohio, and we are most thankful!

Yay spring! LOVE the deer shots - especially the yin/yang one... Now if the temps could get the memo we could actually sit in that swing :)

I love all of your amazing photos. I've been enjoying the fat bumble bees in our wild flowers. My neighbors cut their grass down to the dirt and have no bees. It makes me crazy. :-). Happy Spring! xo

Another great series of spring photographs. I love the swing and I know you treasure it all the more because your father made it.

Heather doesn't look too convinced that warmer weather has arrived.
