a Spring Day!

ITs so warm this past weekend... I ate pancakes on my front porch the doors and widows thrown open and a warm breeze had the American Flag on the house flappin to and fro! Yeah I KNOW pancakes at 3 pm, how can I be so reckless? LOL I dont think its one of the deadly sins...but its possibly a cardinal sin. NO low cal syrup either!! JUST slurped it up and the girls licked the plate when I was done..trust me they didnt get much.

So its Spring here--



More Evidence...


 ...ran into a large flock of Grackles....


One of them had to steal the show...


This Loggerhead Shrike was watching them and I believe he said the grackles reminded him of a honey badger...er something like that.

  1. Ooh awesome- love a good shrike! Funny about your pancakes- I made pancakes yesterday morning and made an extra one for the dogs. Forgot about it, went out birding, came home to a smashed plate and no pancake, haha. My own fault for leaving it on the counter!

  4. Oooh, Sondra, don't!!! So many foods I am not allowed now :-(

    We were fooled into thinking Spring was almost here... then we had heavy snow this weekend, thankfully most of it has gone now where I am.

    Love the Shrike pic and the blooms!

  8. Thanks for the morning smile! And Happy Spring! I get a little envious this time of year b/c "no winter, no spring"... I mean, of course there are flowers here in Florida, but not the delicate lovely early spring blossoms. Life is full of trade-offs. And at least I get to look at your lovely pictures.
