A gold goldfinch was on the thistle feeder yesterday – he’s brighter than the rest at the moment, but they’ll catch up. They’re actually here all year, but all look drab in the winter. The guys brighten up in the spring.
And the crocuses are up! Not blooming, but you can see yellow and purple and white – just a few more days, and they’ll be quietly beautiful.
I’m getting wonderful exercise, getting in shape as the yard gets in shape. Never managed to get all the leaves off the grass before snowfall, and am catching up now. Anyone want to help? Plenty of work available, outdoors assisting the Great Mother.
