Thursday's Random Thoughts

                  Aloe Vera

Lots of birds at the feeders today. There are Nuthatches, Goldfinches, Mourning Doves, Blue Jays and Chickadees. I hope to get pictures of them soon.




We got lots of snow yesterday and it really is winter now around here. This is the time of year it usually settles in along the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia. The snow will now come and go till April when we get lots of rain and the temperature stays pretty cool till May.




But here we are in the middle of January. Time can be so fleeting. All of a sudden, it seems, we have been transported into another season. 




This post has been brought to you by the word 'lots'.

  3. We have more snow than usual, more cold than usual too!

    I'm sick of it, sick of it, I say!

    I am looking foreword to lots of green, lots of sunshine, lots of leaves, and lots of flowers. Lots of nice temperatures is wanted too, with lots of light breezes and beezes!

    I hope you catch some good pictures of birds Jim!

  4. I hear you! It seems that after the hustle of the holidays, the winter seems so long and dreary! But I'm trying my best not to wish it await. Instead, I'm hoping to enjoy it to the best of my ability this year :)

  5. Oh, I love to watch the birds especially in winter. Last year, after the big blizzard, there was just no food anywhere for the birds -- everything was buried and we couldn't even get to our bird feeders. I threw tons of seed on the snowbank that was our deck and all the birds came within seconds. I pulled up a rocker and pulled my son into my lap, and we watched the birds for literally hours. That was one of the favorite hours of my life so far.

    I have never seen aloe look so beautiful!

  7. I know that I'm one of the few people who really enjoys the winter, but, I do. Everything in nature is so clearly defined this time of year. I love the falling snow, and the nip on my nose when I go outside.

    Don't you find that, living in a part of the country where there are four clearly different seasons, that the pluses and minuses of each are easier to see and appreciate?

    Interesting that you call them Golden Finches. I am guessing that they are the same birds that we call Goldfinches. I think I like the Canadian name better.

  8. Louise, You are correct....oopps! We call them Goldfinches too up here. But we, you and I could easily change that! lol Thanks.

  9. I can't wait for your bird-pictures, I'm sure they will be stunning and amazing and I will be envious!!! :-)

    I love the change of seasons, and try to not complain about the cold weather--But if I didn't what else would I complain about?

  10. For me, birds are nearly impossible to photograph. I can't wait to see what the master photographer posts! No pressure, Jim. :)

  12. Yes, deep in the heart of winter here in New England. Thoughts of spring are frozen underneath the heaps of snow and ice upon my front yard. (I can't even see across the street.)

  13. You certainly have lots of aloe vera! I do too -- I need to give some of it away. Pretty photos!
