A Chilly Windy Sunday Morning As February Slips Away

I had to scrape ice off the windshield before heading out yesterday. When I used to work as a fishing guide I would say ” the more adverse the conditions the better”. Foul weather would offer up favored fishing locations where I had them to myself.

It was a far cry from wearing a t-shirt as I was able to do in the afternoons for a while as February slips away. The March flowers and forsythias are blooming. The songbirds are starting to greet me with song as I step out my back door a half hour before sunrise.

Soon the world will transition to green. Such a mild winter has not left me yearning for spring as it normally does. Somehow I am left with the feeling of loosing a big fish at the boat. It was a winter that got away…

    That gull caught itself a nice fish.
    I wonder if the eagles ever get tired of egg sitting. At least there are two of them to take turns.
    That night heron had a strange pose!

      New Hampshire Gardener,
      February has had some wild swings in temps here too. I don’t shoot the gulls often enough they are hard workers for their meals. I bet the eagles do get tired of sitting eggs. The night heron had just spotted a place to land and dropped the landing gear…
