Good morning everyone! It is such a beautiful sunny morning here, but also cold. It is hard to believe having so much cold weather this time in May. Normally we might get one or two days of cold in May but so far we have had 7 days in a row and more coming up this week. But it has been sunny and that part makes each day so beautiful. A smile is much the same, it can make any day sunny and beautiful. And a smile is free, it costs us nothing to smile so why do we so often hide it away? Let’s bring out our smiles and share them with others. It’s amazing how a simple smile can make someone’s day. It can turn other people’s frowns into smiles as well. It can make people feel so much better. It can help someone who is having a rough day by bringing a little sunshine to them.
I was out early this morning feeding Sir George and Lady Pearl, my two herring gulls, and of course several others showed up as well. The sun wasn’t up yet but as I was out there “talking” to the gulls, the sun began to shine on the tops of the trees. How beautiful! Those trees, even without leaves, were shining bright with a golden glow. And there was all the little birds singing in the background with many different songs, yet each blending together with the others. So even though it was cold out there (and I was wearing my winter jacket…in MAY), it was still a very beautiful morning. Always best to look past the problems and rather look at the beauty that surrounds us.
And now for some more spring pics to share with you…
Here we just have a beautiful sunny spot by the river.
We saw the male goldeneye duck the other day and now here is a male with the female (with the brown head). These are fish eating ducks and don’t mind spending the winter here. They are happy as long as there is open water and there always is water here along the river. It’s interesting to watch these ducks in winter when the temp is -40, swimming along in that icy cold water.
There we have our pics for today. I hope you all have a marvelous Monday, stay safe and God bless!
