Otherwise, we've just been enjoying every minute of sunny weather here. In Minnesota, everything magically comes to life again in the spring. When it gets just a bit warm - like 60 degrees F - people appear out of nowhere. Kids are out playing, people are out walking with their dogs, and we start inspecting the gardens for any signs of green sprouts. Haven't seen this many people out and about since about OCTOBER! So, this past week I've been enjoying the familiar walks around the neighborhood, and exploring some nearby parks and nature trails. Nothing much is green yet, but the sunshine sure feels good! This is what I've been enjoying on my walks:
Neighbor horses greet us at the fence when we are out walking - as if they are enjoying seeing people out and about again too. All that brown grass and those bare trees will be green soon.
My back yard bonfire pit . . .
Some kind of budding tree - I don't even know what it is, but the buds were so pretty . . .
These birds look sort of prehistoric, don't they? They are either Blue Herons or Sandhill Cranes, both of which I am on a mission to get some pictures of. (A little bit closer, hopefully.)
And this. This is quite humorous. Hubby designed this little sculpture to be funny. You might not see the humor in it unless you've seen the Spoonbridge and Cherry at the center of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
