Blue Skies & Melting Snow

Bond Head

I'm loving the sunshine and blue skies!


Pacing, waiting for the ice to melt

These two Canada Geese were walking back and forth in front of this branch. Geese are claiming their territories, honking ferociously to keep others away.

I am linking to Sunlit Sunday HERE

That does look like a seasons end shot - our leaves are picking up some colour now, so maybe the seasons are turning.

February was such a month cold that now 8°C feels like heatwave. I had some red wing black birds in my backyard last week. In my area they are one of the first birds to return from the south.

Sandra said...

these geese must have read the calendar letting them know spring is HERE.. LOL

Lovely scene and geese.

I love how the snow is gradually melting away and the gardens are coming back into view. Just need a bit of warmth now to get rid of the rest of the dirty snow.

I think it's neat the way the geese pairs will claim their pond even while it's still frozen.

great wispy trees in the first shot and love the pacing geese. :)

Viola said...

Beautiful! We also have Canada geese here. And I love them among other birds. I think they are wise, they always look as.
Melting snow is good, for the birds and for us. But here it's snowing today!

Have a great week ahead!

The geese must be very impatient by now!

Ginny said...

I love Canada geese, and I can just imagine them doing this! What a sweet little house in front of that blue blue sky!

Cathy H. said...

The sun does look lovely! Perfect posing of the geese!

Such pretty shots of the sun with the snow! Have a great week.

Cristal @ Dapple Design said...

Ah the geese. Our winter was mild enough this year that some of them never left.

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams said...

I love blue skies and snow - probably better than blue skies and blossom :-) Have a good evening. Chel

RedPat said...

I'm impatient like those geese! Heard a Red-winged Blackbird this morning - Hurray!!

CatTales said...

Really beautiful pictures.

cieldequimper said...

Do they ever fall flat on their beaks? :-)

Lee@A Guide to Northeastern Gardening said...

Beautiful photography! I love the captures of blue sky and geese.

A Quiet Corner said...

Geeses are so beautiful but they are also mean buggers!...:)JP

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Three cheers for Spring!

Lorrie said...

You've captured a beautiful scene - the cabin and trees of late winter, just waiting for spring. Geese are fun to watch and they can certainly be noisy!

Selma from eclectichomelife.blogspot.com said...

Yeah for melting snow! Although there is nothing like snow landscape and blue skies. Loved the geese photo.

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

Isn't it wonderful to see the snow melting! We are in heavy melt down here in Michigan. The shores of the Great Lakes are freeing up once again. I love seeing the birds arrive and watching their behavior. I heard some Canada geese going over yesterday- a sure sign of spring in our area!

Mascha said...

I like the open bright in the first photo. And beautiful geeses...
Have a nice new week

Rambling Woods said...

That first pic is so nostalgic for me, reminiscent of such landscapes of my childhood.

Beautiful!

I can hear the "spring" in your comment! No blue skies here right now, but some rain says springtime too.
