Late Pansy bloom in November

A check in my flower bed this morning revealed this beautiful Pansy blossom in bloom! Yesterday morning it had been rimmed with frost! I had bought cold resistant Pansy seeds in the spring and started them indoors as bedding plants sometime in March or April and then transplanted them as seedlings into my flower bed sometime in May; hoping that I might have some late fall blooms and I am rewarded for this project with this beautiful late Pansy blossom on this cold day of November 26th, 2015.

Blueberry picking time

Yhere was no time more exciting than blueberry picking time when I was a child  We each had a small domestic shortening pail and we would be off picking for the day.  The big reward when we returned home with full pails at the end of the day was that Mother would make blueberry biscuits for supper.  Fresh homemade biscuits straight from the oven slathered with butter smothered with stewed blueberries.

ries.  There was no taste comparable!!

There are two to these pairs

The theme for today's Thursday's challenge is pair and yesterday I saw a beautiful, handsome pair of Wood Ducks! I think this pair is a most handsome species!

On the previous day I found two handsome Canada Geese sharing a puddle together.
Spring is such a colourful, beautiful, exciting time of year.  I wish a wonderful good day to everyone.

Ice-fishing Shacks

These picturesque little buildings on the river ice are used for fishing.  A hole is made in the ice with an auger and the person inside the shack fishes through the hole in the ice.  Some of these shacks have a little stove in them also; you can see a few chimneys in some of the buildings. I would like to take a photo of smoke rising from the chimneys .

Happy Groundhog day!!!

Dear Mr Groundhog,
Don’t be afraid,
If your shadowy image you see
Stay around without fear
And let us know that spring is drawing near.
A sunny or cloudy day
Shouldn’t a legend make
For, anyway, many think you’re just a fake

Enjoy your day that’s named just for you
And please give us a good report, please do!
Because dear Mr. Groundhog,
I believe in you.
Another blizzard is forecast for our area today, however on a more positive note, with such a forecast, so  a groundhog perhaps won't see its shadow.. think positive!  An early spring may be forecast.  I certainly hope so!  there is no more room in our yard for snow!!!
Have a wonderful Groundhog Day everyone!!!

Snow Removal after a Big Storm

Early in the morning , even before daylight, the flashing lights outdoors revealed a man hard at work plowing snow from our driveway. But there is  news now that there is an even bigger snowstorm on the way!  Oh, well I guess that is to be expected during these cold, winter, months!  although this winter seems to be far less severe than last winter's storms.

And once the snow plowing is completed, along comes the village sidewalk snow blower .. Sometimes part of our cleared driveway gets snowed on again.  Oh well I guess that's winter living. Everyone tries their best to do a good job of removing the unwanted snow.  Thank You to all the winter workers!
