Welcome Spring 2013 and Mr. Bluebird too!

Spring 2013 arrived yesterday at 7:02am and then yesterday afternoon, as if on cue, this lovely spritely male Eastern Bluebird alighted in our old apple trees to suss the spots for nesting, I assume. What a little beauty he was and hopefully we will see more of him as the weeks go by.

Just the day before we were in the midst of our latest snowstorm named Ukko meaning paternal grandfather in Finnish, which graced us with about 10" of light, fluffy beauty - I wonder if this will be the last snow of the season?

The tenacious birch leaves are still clinging to the branches providing a welcome splash of colour in the whitened landscape.
