Cold Rain on Cold Snow

Nearly the end of March and the snow is gradually fading away but today overnight freezing rain was followed by much plain, old wet rain. On the other hand, this tree was standing tall and caught the eye.

European Starling

I took this photograph a year ago this day and had forgotten about it. I know Starlings are unpopular in some quarters as alien interlopers not native to this continent but they are incontrovertibly very handsome, especially at this time of the year when they have a brand new suit of feathery clothes to wear. I like the way he is looking at the camera … “Who do you think you’re looking at, mate?”

Morning sun with snowmist

As the snow finally melted away, there was still a considerable amount just to the right of this, the morning air was filled with ‘snowiest’ as the temperature rose. Auguries of good things to come.
