The Week In Seven Photos

While I realize how important it is to stop and savor the special moments of the day, this week I found myself looking forward to changing the calendar from February to March. 

We are now less than two weeks away from Paczki Day (Fat Tuesday) and will be celebrating in less than a month St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of spring and the fabulous March Madness Basketball tournament.

In between the snow and rain events this week, nature teased me with thoughts of spring with two days of consecutive blue skies, lovely colors at sunrise, sounds of squawking crows and

the air filled with the cardinals song whenever their beaks were not full of birdseed.

There were several moments to stop and savor, including the super snow moon,

the backyard visitors feeling a little feisty,

and morning coffee with the lead turkey who arrives an hour earlier than the rest of the gang and keeps a vigilant watch to ensure a safe landing environment for his friends.

    That’s plenty to look forward to! What a collection of colour and characters here – love the crow and tree purple sunrise silhouette, and the snow moon.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you!🙂 It’s been wonderful to have blue skies throughout the week and luckily football is back this weekend when the rain and wind arrive. The Man United/Liverpool match should be a good one. Enjoy your weekend!🙂

    Some great pix – some quite amusing. Do the turkey and deer play together or is the tom being territorial? The cardinal looks like he is on a giant cupcake with rainbow sprinkles. 😉 And I love the pink sunrise, too!

    1. Thank you!!🙂 I have been watching that deer since last summer when it loved to race around the yard and always try to play with the other deer until the mother tired of all the antics. Surprisingly the deer and turkeys have silently watched one another in the yard this winter as they crossed paths and the turkey was startled when the deer started prancing and wanting to play.😁

    1. Thank you!🙂 Some of these winter weeks it has been difficult between the storms to capture photos, but this week it was wonderful to be out with the camera under that gorgeous moon and skies with so many wonderful companions.🙂

        Well we’ve had another wildfire breaking out, bizarrely. A snowfall would be welcome.
