A perfect winter's day with spring on the way soon!

Bright blue skies



 cold, with a touch of frost

deep shadows

Sunlight highlighting the spores on the underside of this hart's tongue fern

growing by the river, which is flowing high today 

Chaffinches, dunnocks, robins and song thrushes singing' bullfinches chasing each other through the branches and wild garlic leaves growing! 

A beautiful winter's day in the woods!

I am SO glad to see blue skies again! We've had a dark, extra dreary winter, here in Interior BC. Your blue sky photos made me smile. :-)

Gorgeous day here, cold, but a strong sun was warming. We have floods here now, my usual walking and running routes were blocked in places. Still glorious though. Long tailed tits and robins, wrens and chaffinch.

Juliet, I read the other day on THE WEATHER CHANNEL that there are 600 plants blooming early over there. I know you must be enjoying that. Your photos look like spring.

Sun a little higher and a little longer every day now in the Northern Hemisphere.

Lovely hints of spring, Juliet. It feels more like winter here - another sharp frost last night, but some blue in the sky.
