Sunday s Spring Day......not!
We will warm up just enough to send this snow away. It was different to see such large snow flakes coming down late last evening. When Button and I were outside late evening it was just a quiet large snow coming down. That kind of snow absorbs into Button's fur making him feel soaked just like it is in the rain.
The red twigs are doing well inside and have started forming their flower buds. I am thinking that I might have to put some sand or soil at the bottom of the jar to get the roots to form.
The task of cleaning the two filters used to clean the water has been accomplished. It took a half of day for the cleaned filters it to clear up the water. The fish don't mind a dirty tank but the oxygen level is reduced when rotting plant material and such are allowed to happen.
The hardy geranium start that was in water all winter is now in soil. It was getting peaked the past few weeks with the water only situation. It had a lot of roots on it so it should perk up quickly.
I have seen robins from the thrush family around the property for a few weeks. I still did not get a great photo of this one but it was moving all around hopping to find a worm or bug.
I still have a few junco birds in the yard. They like the finch feeder sock and tend to go to the ground bellow it and pick up the spilled seeds from the goldfinches. It is such a beautiful gray bird with that darker gray head.
This afternoon the evidence of snow fall doesn't seem to be left. We didn't get warm but tomorrow promises to be predicted to be warmer.
I appreciate you stopping by today.
