It’s that time again!

What time is it?

It’s nest building time! That means it must be spring. Never mind the fact that it snowed yesterday. The calendar says today is April 16th, and the blue jay is ready to go into nest building mode! Yay for spring! One of these days the temperature will warm up (above this morning’s 24 degrees Fahrenheit), the tulips, forsythia, and azaleas will burst into bloom, and fruit trees will blossom. I can’t wait, and I’ll bet you can’t either!

Look closely, and you will see some signs of the new season. Our daffodils bloomed yesterday, the tree frogs in the bog are singing, the redwing blackbirds with their distinctive song are calling out a welcome to spring. Spring has arrived…more or less anyway. Maybe it has seemed like less for the past few days, but soon it will seem like more, and we can wholeheartedly celebrate.

Blog update

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I have created a connection between my photo galleries on SmugMug, this WordPress blog, and my Facebook page. If all works as planned, my blog entries will automatically link to Facebook each time I post, and when I have multiple pictures to share I will include a link to my current SmugMug gallery. If you enjoy my pictures and blog postings, feel free to click the like button or leave a comment. Comments are always appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of Ohio today.

When one of these beautiful birds flies in for a photo op, it always makes me smile! It posed happily and wasn’t the least intimidated by my presence.

Almanac

After temperatures of nearly 80 degrees on Sunday, spring deserted us. On Tuesday night snow fell. Only about an inch and a half, but snow is decidedly unwelcome, especially when it is April and we are eager for spring flowers and blossoming fruit trees. The temperature this morning was 24 degrees, but the sun was shining, skies were blue, and the light was wonderful for taking pictures. I was reminded that I need to get up and out earlier to take advantage of the golden hour for photography when the day is still fresh. Breakfast can wait! More pictures from recent photo walks are posted here in my SmugMug gallery.

 

Blog update

To make the most of my photo websites, I have connected them. In the future, my WordPress blog posts, i.e. Seen Along the Trail,  will be automatically linked to my Facebook page, and a link to my photo galleries on SmugMug will be included in each post. If you enjoy my photos and blog ramblings, I would love to hear from you in the comments section.

Thanks for stopping by today.
