SkyWatch Friday

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 17 March 2011

We are seeing a lot more sun now. Temperatures are on the rise and snow is melting. The birds are returning once again, singing in the morning. I am on the lookout  for the first Robin. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets at this time of year. With the time change we are seeing a lot more daylight and I am looking forward to spring this Sunday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!
Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter.Lullabies, dreams and love ever after. Poems and songs with pipes and drums. A thousand welcomes when anyone comes... That's the Irish for you!

For Skies the world over go to SkyWatch Friday!

  21. Longer days mean you have to wait longer for great sunset photos like yours It's worth it. The first birds usually to return in my area are the Red Winged Blackbird... and they're back.

  23. congrats on the arrival of spring
    it has been slow this year
    fabulous view of the sky from your place
    we are heading into the tropical version of winter, it gets dark earlier but this old Canadian finds it hard to grasp the terms when it is still 27C in the afternoon

  25. We have seen robins and heard birds singing, but not much sun and warmth, yet. Thanks for reminding me that Sunday is really Spring. That helps!

  26. Tania Says:
