Daily Pics #139.

Good morning to all of you, my friends, on this beautiful holiday Monday!  And even if it isn’t a holiday where you live, Happy Monday to everyone!  It is another wonderful morning here, though it is cloudy right now.  The forecast said nothing about clouds for us today, only sunshine.  So hard to believe that with all of our modern technology, they still can’t see a large area of clouds in the sky. 

Sir George was here just shortly after 5am this morning, sitting on the bird feeder and calling quietly for me.  Just letting me know he’s there and waiting for his breakfast.  But Lady Pearl is likely sitting on the nest now so perhaps he wants to give her breakfast in bed today.  Yes, he is actually very good at sharing his food with her, even when they both would show up together.

Yesterday morning another herring gull showed up which was about the same size as Sir George.  After a short “discussion”, the newcomer actually chased Sir George off the feeder.  However, he was a bit nervous about me standing there so he only grabbed a bit of food and was gone quickly.  Then Sir George came back and finished getting his breakfast.  Never thought any other gull would chase him away, but perhaps the other gull is younger.

And now to continue our walk from yesterday, we are still down at the river…

Looking up towards the path from the rocky shoreline we saw yesterday.IMG_4385

Leaves on the smaller shrubs are coming out nicely now and even the trees are showing some nice green as the young leaves are now beginning to grow.  Always exciting to see that new green in the trees, showing that summer is not far away now.IMG_3416

Here the sun dappled path continues through the pines past the bench where we sat yesterday looking down the river.

It is such a beautiful time of year, as everything comes to life once again little by little for us to enjoy.  I hope you have been enjoying our little walk yesterday and today.  Have a wonderful day everyone, stay safe and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Steve, thank you for sharing your world with us. The greenery is wonderful. Here in the Far North, the leaves came out and in less than 5 days looked like summer leaves. Here it has been sunny and most of the snow has melted with overflowing rivers. I can’t wait until it is warm enough to transplant some flowers and veggies. Enjoy your day!

    • Wow, it does move fast there! Leaves are just tiny yet, but enough to give a faint green color to the trees. I have some flowers to plant in containers this year, just a few though. I could easily do that now but need to pick up some soil for the containers first. It was a very beautiful day and the next couple days should be even nicer!
      Thank you so much! Enjoy your evening!😃😺

      • Yes, we have extremely short summers and the trees green up fast. In 24 hours the leaves open and the mature green happens in less than a week. The leaves will start turning in August. But I am looking forward to a beautiful summer. Our flowers have more intense colors due to the midnight sun and things like cabbage get very big. We had clear skies today with no clouds in sight. Enjoy your summer!

        You are welcome! I am enjoying the evening and the bright light! 🙂

      • Yes indeed, I am certainly enjoying this warm weather, though next week is supposed to be a bit cooler, more normal really, this is well above normal. But I’ll be able to start planting some flowers today which will be very nice, looking forward to that color out there again. I just hope no one destroys my flowers this year.
        Have a great day!😁😸🌞☕☕
