Is that really… could it be… BLUE SKY in New Hampshire!

Yes, yes it is!

However, just so I didn’t get TOO excited about the weather, Mother Nature was kind enough to keep things cool outside – like, 37F/3C with some nice ~~frellin’ arctic blasts of wind~~ breezes while I was taking these shots. Still – there’s absotively posolutely no snow or sleet anywhere in sight, so I’ll take it!

These shots were all taken in my Durham, NH yard on Wednesday (April 18th 2018) between 7:30 and 9am (and to be fair, I wasn’t outside for all of them…stupid wind chased me back inside a few times), and are pretty much in the order I took them.

BLUE SKY in New Hampshire
Good morning, Mr. Goldfinch!
Is it just me, or do the clouds look like they’re giving the sun a standing ovation?
The sun certainly seems to be…beaming back at them… 😂
…and the crowd… I mean, clouds go wild!
The last of the snow in the woods is now officially all gone!
Peekaboo, sun! Is that you hiding behind that shagbark tree?
Certainly looks like you’re behind there.
I think I see you peeking out a bit…
There you are!
The Phoebes are getting their nest ready.

Mr Downy Woodpecker stopped by for a bit.

Got a couple of short clips too – apologies for the swaying & shaking. Even with a tripod, I have a hard time keeping the camera still for more than a second or two at a time. *pout*

 
 

 
 

I think he spotted me…

…and doesn’t look too happy with the paparazzi…LOL
Mr Red Squirrel is practicing his moves…
…while Mr Chipmunk contemplates his next one.
Mr Grey Squirrel seems to be playing a mirror game with the missus.
Speaking of missus, looks like this isn’t Mr Squirrel after all – and so much for my squirrel-proof feeder. 😜
YAY! One of my crows finally stopped by for a long overdue visit!
Don’t think he’s too impressed with my fangirling…
The crow equivalent of an teenager rolling their eyes… LOL!

 

Happy Sunny Wednesday!

BLUE SKY in New Hampshire. Just wanted to let everyone know why this site looks a bit different at the moment. As some of you are aware, for months now I’ve had issues with the site going down, lagging, and other such shenanigans. Now my hosting company is suggesting that I spend more time optimizing, because the said “the amount of traffic and the elements within your site it appears that this causing the memory limits to be exceeded on your site.” For the moment, I’m stripping the site down to the bare bones, and seeing if that helps. In a Success! Finally, it has turned. Success! BLUE SKY in New Hampshire. Finally, it has turned. Success! Please pardon the mess. First, this is not a passive voice. Next, I am writing in an active voice. Therefore, my SEO will stop telling me how to write. Please pardon the mess. Furthermore, these sentences are also shorter than twenty word.

  1. I don’t know what to love the most – the fact that the snow is gone, your great shots/videos, or your captions. We have a few tiny patches of snow in the woods, but mostly gone with the promise of warmer temps on the horizon. So excited about it! -Molly
