Nature Notes: mixed weather

We had a touch of winter for a few days and then spring returned.

Now it looks like it will be up and down temperature wise.

The immediate forecast looks like we won't have any more of the very cold nights like we had for several days.

I hope we have a decent winter this year.

Until last winter we have a string of winters with at least several pretty snows and a long enough stretch of cold to feel like we'd had winter.

cold then warm
sun yet rain
it's all so confused
the red berries are so pretty
all your photos capture the season so beautifully

same here... only two snows and each lasted a day, then melted... beautiful photos Carver.

Love that bottom shot, Carver. The one in the middle with the reddish-orange leaves is nice, too.

If you don't like the weather, wait a minute.

Lovely nature scenes, Carver. Neat sighting of the flicker. We had a mild winter last year and I was happy. I prefer spring, summer and fall. Have a great week!

Your nature notes are always great -- makes me feel like I've been on a visit. I guess I hope you get a good winter (if that's what you want)...I'd have been happy with what you had last year...but you already knew that!

The second photo, berries or leaves?

I always like berries. Mainly in Borneo, I didn't see any.

Our weather has been strange too but so very gray lately. I love the northern flicker in the top photo. I won't see any of them till spring and then only if I listen and look carefully as they ant in the grass.. Michelle

Beautiful photos...so reflective of nature and weather.

False springs...the plants and shrubs never know whether to bloom or wait.
