As I write this article, spring is only one day away. One might expect it to start off warm, but no such luck.
I awoke too early this past Saturday morning and peeked out the window, expecting to see rain. It was dry, and I decided to go back to bed because it would be another couple of hours of sleep I could get before Anthony Gray showed up for our birdwatching excursion. When I woke up later, the ground was almost white with snow. Looking out my kitchen window, I could see that I must have been the only one feeding the birds in my neighborhood.
Here is another slightly chilly start to our morning travel, hopefully in the bird world. Birds seem to be at a standstill just before spring arrives with the breeding season at hand. In another month, the excitement should be in the air.
This weekend started out with overcast skies, but before night fell, it started clearing off. Sunday brought clear skies and, as I am writing this, it is a tad warmer.
Here is another weather break where it is so warm one day and cold the next. As I write this, it is a warm 69 degrees outside, and by tonight, it will be a cold 33 degrees. That's what they say about the weather here in Tennessee - if you don't like it, wait about 30 minutes, and it will change.
Well, I enjoyed another great weekend with decent weather and very nice temperatures. Before too long, the mornings will be tolerable and from midday on way too hot. This week Anthony Gray and I did not get out to do a little birding. I hope to get back on track next week with my best Bubba.
It was so good to have a little spell of rain this past weekend. It seems that the rain that falls is so much better for our gardens than what comes out of our hosepipes. People from other areas have trouble understanding the concept of a hosepipe. I have always called it that.
Even though they are still present and feeding all over my yard, I will try not to mention the "H" word. This time of the year, when cold snaps happen to our northern states, it's time to be preparing for an influx of those feathered friends that call Tennessee home for the winter months.
