Twenty Four and Rising
Degrees that is. I can still see snow on a nearby mountain top, but looks like warmer weather has officially arrived. I say that, knowing that tomorrow's forecast is for 11 degrees and rain. Well, I could do without the 11 degrees but we could use a good rain.
Yesterday I grabbed the camera and took this poor shot of one of our male American goldfinches at the feeder. It's taken through two panes of glass, so it looks a bit hazy.
The next blossoms in succession are arriving, as these apple blossoms will attest. The little peach trees are all but done, and beginning to fade, but it has been so windy I've never been able to get a picture of them while they were at their prime.
And now the lilacs are beginning to bloom. These are the deep purple variety I love so much. I just remembered that there are some deep purple irises in the front beds. I have to go out there and get a picture of those before they are finished.
We're packing up to move. Our books, CDs and DVDs are in boxes. The shelves are empty except for a few incidentals which can be put on the bunks at the last minute. I'm not sure how much more we can do until Mike comes to move us, and as of yet, we don't know when that will be. If we disappear from sight for a few days, it's because our cable internet connection will go down when we move. It has to be set up again in our new spot. That may take a few days.
