Today was a beautiful sunny spring day and I wanted to get outside to enjoy it. The warm sun felt so good after having snow that just didn't seem to want to go away. Today it reached 70°F. I managed to sneak in a few minutes of tidying up a garden. Lots of work to be done there.
Since it was such a lovely day, I thought Mr. Bunny (Copper) would enjoy getting out for his first run of the season, and boy did he run. It appears he remembered his outings from last year because this year he didn't hesitate to take off running. He also enjoyed being able to munch on the grass. Ours hasn't had much of a chance to grow yet since we had snow not too many days ago - so don't look too closely lol!!
Isn't he a sweet boy? He has a very good nature.
He stops to clean often when he's out running around.
Stopping for a rest and enjoying the warm sun.
The cats were also able to get out for a bit on their harnesses. Unfortunately, we experienced "Blackie's Great Escape". He has a way of wiggling out of his harness no matter how you fasten it. After I took him back to the house I decided to take Sneakers for a walk around the pond. I'm glad I did. Tons of goldfish were up near the water's edge. Prior to this we had only seen a couple and with having Great Blue Herons coming for visits, I wondered if there would be any fish left in the pond. Some of the fish were fairly large and were various colours, some quite beautiful. I called my hubby over and as we walked around the pond we saw a few leopard frogs, some floating lifelessly in the water until we got close. They're professionals at appearing to be dead. We also heard Peeper Frogs from the marshy areas. It was very enjoyable.
We have a couple of Blue Jays that visit the feeder regularly. They do like to keep an eye on me when I'm watching them though. I've been putting some peanuts out for them lately which of course they love, as long as the squirrels don't get to them first. This one is obviously a bit tense as his crest is back.
The pictures are a little fuzzy as they were taken through the window and someone hasn't done their spring cleaning yet. I'll have to have a word with my hubby lol!!!
Still keeping an eye on me...
This Black Bird visits a lot. I'll just say it's the same one as I really have no idea. It isn't mean the way that it appears in the photo.
I hope you enjoyed the photos. Take care and enjoy your week!
