Happy Leap Day
(Or Leap-Out-Of-Bed Day.)
And European Starlings have been filling the yard.
Tuesday, March 1
We woke up to this notice from our monthly newspaper publisher. (Who will undoubtedly blossom into an amazing speller.)
Thursday, March 3
The Red-winged Blackbirds are back. Let spring commence.
Friday, March 4
During a quick snow, all of the birds came to visit.
(Feisty Dark-eyed Juncos.)
By the afternoon the snow was gone.
And Nana and Pop came with gifts for T's birthday. (And with snow gear packed for one more skiing weekend. +Warm-weather wear, because from skiing they headed straight to a tropical island.)
Saturday, March 5
We woke up early to look for snow on the slopes of Vermont. (It was crazy how little snow there was--it was mostly just at the ski resorts.)
They spent the day at Okemo.
Sunday, March 6
Tired skiers ready for one more day of skiing at Stratton.
Nana and Pop so patiently worked on Beza's skiing skills. She's looking good out there.
The question is--can we safely put away the snow boots?
