Nature Study

When we went outside this afternoon we stopped by the feeder to look at the way that the woodpeckers leave holes in the suet we put out.

Then he grabbed his shovel and moved snow for a while.

We took a look at the ice left behind as the sun has been starting to melt the snowbanks a little. I had never noticed how pretty they were before! I showed them to Monkey and he looked, but then he shoveled it.

Looking at the waves that the wind has blown into the snow had a similar effect. He looked and it was nice, but he wanted to shovel!

Today was an excellent nature study day. I wished that we had more time to play outside, but I have piano lessons all afternoon on Thursdays, and then Monkey's Aunt & Uncle are playing in a Jr. High band concert that we're going to this evening, so the stuff that had to get done all had to happen in the morning. But it was so nice to get outside & look around, move around, feel the breeze, with some decent temperatures after all the below zero stuff that we've been having. Between the negative temps and Monkey being half sick all winter long we've hardly been out at all!

Glad you like the photos. I love practicing!

Would you be ok if I posted a url to someone else's blog who is having a contest on your comments? You could also enter her contest. The idea behind it is to find as many ways to post her contest and then make as many comments per posting her url. (hope that makes sense). If you are not interested, then that's ok. Please leave a response on my blog yes or not. :)
