Every time I take my camera out the birds fly away. This singing cardinal will have to represent the song birds of spring even though he has been hanging out in my evergreen shrubs all winter.
It will be about six weeks before the flowers will start blooming. The first ones i find bloom before there are leaves on the trees.
it is a little early for crocus but with the warm weather I am watching for them. Crocuses are an annual thing and so is downtime in March on this site. Last week I got a security warning and the hosting service tried to sell me a $199 scan or $80 malware protection.
I deleted the suspicious files, and updated or deleted a lot of other things. The site still ran super slow and there were all sorts of
excuses reasons. I decided to just wait a week or so and now everything is fine and I’ll begin posting again on a regular basis. . . like 5 or 6 times a week until next March. 🙂
The lack of snow this year makes up for the too much snow in 2013. I took this picture on April 24th i downtown St. Paul. Yes it was pretty.
This winter has not been a bad one by Minnesota standards but I am really starting to miss green so I went to Como Conservatory and photographed some ferns.
