Doves ~ A Love Story

Well folks it was snowing again today…The tiny flakes of snow gently fell all afternoon, but fortunately it was warm enough for the snow to melt as soon as it touched the ground. Waiting these last few weeks before I can plant out in my permaculture beds is torture for me.

The beds are all prepped and waiting for me to sow a few seeds. The next two days we still have the chill to the days and evenings. But, after Tuesday the temps will be getting back to the higher single digits.. That might not sound good to you where it may be warmer, but for us here anything higher than minus numbers is springtime.. Just have to be weary about the frost at night.

My radishes and peas are all happy little plants inside of my covered garden trug, and the birds are out in force today after the heavy rain we had yesterday. Below, is a little treat for you .. Thank you for watching my YouTube video.. hugs

Blue Jays stay in the North all Winter

It always amazes me the vast number of birds that remain here in the Northern parts of Ontario, Canada. The Blue Jay for one…

I was so excited to see them in my trees that I hurried inside to the pen tablet and started drawing this delightful bird. Although different from what I witnessed in the trees I wanted to try my hand at creating the beauty of these birds. I used a drawing tool called the Pen Tablet and a program called Sketchbook Pro.

This was back on April 5th 2017. Then on April 18th I heard such a racket happening outside I had to jump away from the computer and see what was causing the noise. Once, outside I noticed one of the trees just full of birds all singing or calling out at once. It was a rather high pierced sound along with the road noise from the highway combined, so I added a bit of music instead to the 50 or more Waxwing birds who came for a short visit.

Nature is a glorious thing to witness and these birds lifted my spirits almost as if I were flying there with them as they took off to show their beauty to someone else in the neighborhood, hopefully they took as much delight in the sight as I did..
