Nature Notes - Plenty of Gray Days


I'm not feeling very inspired so I'll leave you with a typical gray day. We had a very wet 2009, and 2010 has also began and continued to be wet. I doubt I'll ever forget the drought of 2007/2008 in NC where I live but I'll admit that it's starting to feel like a distant memory.

I'm tired about winter as well.Today we had some sun, but it's cold,cold, and cold...Anyway little Luna enjoyed a lot the sunlight. I'm anxious to see your garden in early Spring! :)

are those Jays in the tree? Gray jays - - (:

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for answering. To answer the question: Ha, gray-jays made me laugh. The lower one is definitely a male cardinal. I'm not positive about the top one. It's hard to tell because usually the male cardinals are so red in photos but you only get a hint of the color in the shot.

Winter has even hit Fla, but not as bad as up north

These two characters are lucky to have each other on a dull day.

This winter has been a bad one for us and I am anxious for spring to get here. Right now we have over forty inches of snow, and we are running out room on where to move it.

I don't know about you but this Ozarks farm chick is sick of gray days. I soooo need me some sun. Sun with warm temps and snow free. Ahhh, now that's a dream!!!

Ya'll have a terrifically blessed day!!!

Carver: We do have to fight the blaws with the colorless skies. Love the Dark Eyed Junco in the header.

gray but spots of bright red inspiration.

I am also sick of the gray days, yet the sort of photo you posted is a favorite of mine - I like the dark nests in the bare trees, but big birds are awesome, too. Your photo feels right to me.
