Far in the distances I heard it!
The slight purrrrrr….my heart skipped a beat, my breath caught in my chest, then from my mouth a sound escaped…
“THEY’RE BACK! THE CRANES ARE BACK!!”
Little purring black dots appeared overhead…
They got closer…
A Crane Silohette
Grace and beauty in the hundreds
Two huge flocks converging
I can not express how excited this makes me!!!
Every year on or around the 18th of April the Cranes appear above our house.
And every year I get camera happy. This year even more so with my new camera😂

We had rain yesterday evening and a bit over night. We thought it might snow, as the chill and smell said snow(snowed on the mountains)but nope; just icy.
I love how my greenhouse is glowing and it has a silver lining.
Bill got me a new fancy-shmancy camera for Christmas.
He complains that I have SOooooo many photos on the computer…Haha! What does he think will happen now?
I gave myself a Photo challenge for the month January so I could learn how to use my new camera.
Our dorky selves!
Ember. She doesn’t stay still.

I am enjoying my camera so far. I still have lots to learn. I am not used to all the selection. 📷
Frosty life outside my Christmasy Kitchen window.

After a breakfast of waffles, whipped cream, thickened huckleberries, syrup and bacon we all opened our gifts and then headed outside into -13c for a bit of X-country skiing on the property.
❄Well, I didn’t go skiing. I went for a wander to enjoy some silence and a very frosty world. ❄
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
8inches of snow fell, finally blanketing our world in white.

Poplar rounds under snow. I love the rings.
