Weather Matters

How wonderful it is; enjoying above freezing tempera -tures and spring like conditions this past week! There is still a lot of snow on the ground but we also have some areas now showing large patches of grass. The arrival of a Common Grackle on Wednesday added to the spring like illusion, and it is still here. The yellow background of the dry grass behind the Blue Jay created an opportunity to capture a photo portraying a mellow sense of warmth in the strong afternoon sun. It is a nice change to post such a colourful picture from the colourless, snow-dominated photos that I have been posting this past December.
