On the second day of Great Backyard Bird Count we were surprised to see our first American Robin of the year!
The American Robin seemed surprised too…
Maybe he thought it was supposed to be spring since on Tuesday we had hit a state-record high temperature of 77!

Daughter and I walked to the creek at dusk during the snowfall on December 29th.
It left six inches but what a magical walk!
A long spell of unusually warm weather with temps in the 60s has really changed up when we see things. Stephanie was going to the mailbox and spotted this garter snake on the gravel drive.
I went to the mailbox on November 22nd and saw that the forsythia bush was blooming. It was still blooming on November 29th.
Doing yard work on November 4th, I noticed that one of our apple trees was blossoming! This doesn’t bode well for next year’s crop
