Blue Skies Are Nice

We have had a lovely yet wet Spring. There are many green things and blooming things as well but Blue skies? Not so much. I post this today to remind me of two things: How much this past Winter was a bummer and the Blue SkiesOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Are Nice!

More Daffodils

I took this  shot with my Canon S3is before the last two nights of heavy frost. I  have not been up to look at them but Daffodils are pretty tough so I am hoping for the best.

Birds Of A Feather

I have wondered about the phrase “Birds of a feather flock together”. So using the tools of the day I found the original on the web. Apparently this old proverb was used  by William Turner in The Rescuing of Romish Fox in 1545. It looked more like this back in the day  “Byrdes of on kynde and color flok and flye allwayes together.” (Spell check does not like this one bit but it would have been the way of the pen back in the 16th century, what.)

So here are two birds I captured in the field on our place a few weeks back. Enjoy!
