Took this shot a few days ago when my attention was drawn to the backyard by a crow flying past with a branch in its beak. I’d hoped to snap some shots of the nest building efforts but the crows (there were three) left the tree where they were working and flew off (presumably to find more building materials).
We’ve sprung our clocks ahead. A crocus tip is peaking up through the soil near my house. The red-winged blackbirds are insisting that spring is coming. My calendar seems to agree. Bitter cold this weekend and a snow storm on the way. Keep your sense of humor. And remember – whatever doesn’t kill you sometimes makes you awfully cranky for a little bit, but you’ll get through it.
