We have had an early week of summer. In fact it has been warmer this week than it is sometimes during the summer. I went to town without a coat. I put away my good snow boots, and resurrected my crocs..I will wear them with socks if it gets cold again. My down parka is still hanging at the ready..I might need it yet this spring. No one has dared to carry the snow shovel away yet.
I have not seen a Robin in our yard yet..Far Guy saw one..but by the time I made it outside with the camera it flew off..most likely to “She who see Robins first” house. Everyone in the entire neighborhood will see one before me. The Juncos are here now resting and eating before they head north. I am waiting for the Goldfinches to come and the Grosbeaks. Our usual Chickadees, Nuthatches and Woodpeckers frequent the feeders. We brought in the peanut butter feeder..it was all melty and might attract a bear. All the bird feeders may have to go in the garage at night very soon. Bears usually don’t wake up until late April or early May, but with this warm weather they may be waking up hungry soon.
The Swans and the Geese are flying overhead. The June bugs are still hitting the windows at night. I heard spring peepers the other day when were near a swamp. Skunks are out and a few have met a happy demise on the highway.
A few farmers can be seen working out in the fields.
