The back yard has field lilies coming up which means we really are moving into spring. I haven't been out to pick up fallen sticks nor raked up any loose leaves yet and probably won't for a while. I do think it will warm up nicely today.
I shared a single shot of one of these on yesterday's Photo a Day blog. They are there looking over the fish tank to see if they can get a drink of water from it. The collared doves seem to be paired off now unlike they were earlier. I don't see the youngster that was following along but this could be another pair.
Our sky is looking a lot more like spring. We will be a little warmer today, almost 70 degres. I see that the silver maples have buds on them. They put out a flower-like bud and a lot of them seem to drop to the ground when it is windy.
We are off today to visit the small town of Murray, Iowa. I have a cousin visiting back from Arizona and being also a class mate some thought it cool for a few of us to get together for the afternoon. I don't like hanging around old people but I guess they are all the same age as me. I don't make a lot of class reunions but this will be a smaller group of them. I will really be glad to see my cousin as he hasn't been back to Iowa for a while. He and his wife live down in the far south of Arizona.
It is Friday and I hope everyone is doing well out there. Thanks for stopping by today. It will be nice to have a warm day.
