Hi everyone. Tuesday has arrived and it is time for T again.
Today for T I am sharing some of the signs of spring that have finally come to New Hampshire where I live.
I know nature is WAY BEHIND here than where many of you live.
Besides the robins, great blue herons and red winged blackbirds being back, the spring peepers are calling at night. Spring peepers, if you don't know, are tree frogs who chirp all night. It's been warm enough lately to sleep with the windows open and I love listening to them. But it isn't quiet. This is a sure sign of spring when the nights get loud with nature's calls.
And the buds on the trees are getting bigger. These buds (above) are on my weeping cherry tree which means it will be flowering soon.
And last week I had one crocus blooming. And now look at them all.
I know that many of you have had daffodils, tulips and even lilacs blooming. My daffodils are just peeking their leaves out of the ground.
They too shall be coming, one of these days.
I saw a newt on the road today when I walked.
And the bears are back out of their winter denning.
I didn't see any bears, but I did see this when I woke up Saturday morning.
What might look like modern art is actually a pole I had 2 bird feeders hanging from, which was a straight pole. Goes to show you how strong those bears are to be able to bend the pole the so much.
I am just surprised both dogs slept through Mr. Bear's visit. usually they bark up a storm and we can make enough noise to chase the bear away. He had a Thanksgiving feast this time.
On Easter Sunday morning I went with my husband up to my mother-in-laws home which is about 30 minutes north of us. My mother-in-law is now living over in Maine with my husband's sister, and her house is closed up for the winter. But my husband keeps his boat there during the winter, and he is antsy to get it and bring it home. He went over to check if the snow was gone and if the road wasn't too muddy to pull it over so he can tow it home next weekend. I decided to hitch along and take the dogs for a walk.
At a few spots in the woods there were bits of snow, but the road was clear and not even muddy.
The little blue tent looking thing in the photo are the tarps over my husband's boat. The black dog is Pete. He was waiting for me the slow poke to catch up.
And last week we had ice out. Most lakes are now ice free, or at least enough you can maneuver a boat on them. The lake the MIL house is on is now back to water.
Another good sign of spring.
Both dogs went in to cool off after their walk (and boy that water must be cold seeing the ice just went out), and then Pete decided to go swimming so I threw him a stick.
And on the way home, we went by the bay to check and see if one of my favorite food places showed any signs of getting ready to open.
I was excited to see this.
Those of you who have stopped by for T might remember the fantastic lobster rolls they make. I haven't had a lobster roll since they closed last early September.
And you can guess what I am thinking of doing on the weekend of May 4.
My mouth is watering already.
This photo is also my drink related photo for the week. OK, no cups with liquid for me this week but there are several signs for Coco-cola on the building.
Hope you decide to join us for T this week. Hopefully by next week my grass will be green and maybe even I will have daffodils blooming.
Have a happy T day and thanks for visiting my blog.
