First Thunderstorm of the Year

Nice to see the sun for a short break after the days of rain!

World's Most Amazing African Violet Bloom

First bloom after a rest of the last two months;
all the ones on this violet are different patterns of white and maroon/pink,
and I personally think this one is the most perfect ever.

With another bloom peaking out underneath....

The moon in the afternoon
-which rhymes, if you missed that-
from the porch, a lovely place to contemplate the day,
and how tired you are.

Happy Valentine's Day

I might make apple clafoutis later, just depends. I mean Dad is visiting, and it is nice to make something for guests. But had a bit of asthma trouble this morning, so have to see.

Because I can only go so long without sharing another sunrise set.
These are in order, the color went from hot pink to deep gold, to a subtle blend.

Pileated Woodpecker, 
always fun to see.

Sibling love,

Momma love,

......Exasperated love.
This was the only of who knows how many in which Galbraith was remotely still.
Gwen's patience is amazing.

The Times

It was supposed to be snowing today......

Daisy and Demi confer......

Gemini, with Rose behind

They get pretty excited playing together;
I think this was a conference to decide whether they should start another game-
or just nap. 
Napping is very popular.

See what I mean?

Hellebore buds

Demi studiously ignoring Spearfighter One-
probably a good move.

Daisy "tasting the air"- or sticking her tongue out for the heck of it. 
Also always a popular activity.

 Goat rush!
Plus roosters. Roosters are like that.

And the mouse nest in the piano.
Just a general word to the wise mouse, don't hold musical soirees at night-
or really anytime.
Pretty much guarantees your discovery.

Spearfighter One Opines

I don't get all this fuss over a few goats.
but mostly it's just more goats.
Seems pretty dull to me.
