Signs of Spring.

The first nap of the morning. The sun streamed through the windows and filled the mouse-house with warmth.
With full tummies from breakfast it was time for that first nap of the day.
  But naps are short and the birds are very noisy as the winter chill disappears and a promise of spring is in the air.

We are hoping to catch sight of our resident rabbit again.

I had a visit from a Pileated Woodpecker again yesterday. I expect it is the same one that showed up last month. Perhaps it will hang around now and brighten up my feeders.

We have a few signs of Spring in the air. Snow and icicles are melting fast as the sun warms up and there are more visits daily from our local birds. They seem to be quite excited these last few days. A beautiful pair of cardinals were early visitors this morning along with a pair of doves.
Oh yes, the crows are here, too.  haha!

hugs, Deb


  1. The sun is warm and inviting! The drip drip drip of water from the icicles, and lots of birdsong makes one's heart soar!

  2. There's nothing like a nap after a good meal. I wish I could do that at work after lunch...

  3. Love the photos of everyone taking a nap! That of course is Charlie's favorite pose!

  4. We are dripping here too, beautiful to see the sun. Don't think it will last though. Kane looks so cozy in the sun!

  5. It sounds like spring is definitely on its way! We had our first sunny and relatively warm weekend today. Bliss!!

    Have a good week!

  6. Such contented felines :)
    Kane seems quite happy, too :)

  7. Naps are a very important part of a day for cats and dogs. We would be wise to learn from them!

  8. We had some warm sunshine today, too! And our birds seem to know spring is coming as they were singing their hearts out today! Kane looks adorable there during his nap. :)

  9. Our birdies have been singing away as the sun shines and temps are warmer . I took photos of our first spring bird and that was a Song Sparrow or as some folk call them Field Sparrow oh he was trilling and singing so wonderfully on the trees here today ! . No Robins here yet but I expect they will show up by the end of the warm week ! I was out enjoying the sun here today to as was Miggs , Lovely photos and glad you are enjoying all the wonderful birdies and getting lots there to ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  10. Look at those sweet sun-puddlers! What wonderful photos!

  11. Awww you've got such lovely sunpuddles!
    We see signs of spring in the air here, too. I hope it'll arrive soon :-)

  12. Those are some content kitties and woofie. :)

  13. Our snow is melting a little too, and the temps are warmer, so nice. Love the nappers.

  14. Loving the look of that sunshine for you! Enjoy those naps, Guys.
    And I am hoping your bunny reappears this spring. They are so fun to have. We used to have lots of cotton tails here and they were so sweet!

  15. Was it EVER warm and sunny today!! I can't believe how fast the snow is melted.

    I'm envious of your pileated woodpecker. We have them in our woodlot but it's been a while since I've seen one. Amazing birds!
