Valentine's Day is almost here. Do you do anything to mark the day? Since one of my sons was born on Feb. 14, around here it's been more of a birthday celebration with a nod to all things heart-ish. Like heart shaped cakes or the heart shaped cookies that I used to bake. Notice I say USED to because I don't bother with rolled out cookies any more.
I went on my walk this morning and carried an umbrella because the clouds looked ominous. As it was I got a few sprinkles but didn't even open my umbrella. The two best bird sightings were of an Eagle flying quite close to the lake and of a Hummingbird. Probably an Anna's because they are the ones most apt to stick around in spite of the chilly weather. Oh yes, and I heard the first Red-Winged Blackbird singing his Oh-ka-lee song. A sure sign of Spring.
Thanks for visiting. Granny Marigold
