We had one last visit from Winter before she packs up and heads to Palm Springs, or wherever the heck it is that she hangs out in the off season.
Saturday morning was -14, we had snow all day, with biting winds and a windchill factor of minus plenty. Just as cold this morning, but without the winds. It didn't get above zero today.
Winter seems to be having one last kick at the can everywhere. Yesterday, my dad sent these pics from their place in the eastern Fraser Valley. Poor little birds! The orange one is a male rufous hummingbird, the green is a female. The hummingbirds haven't arrived in our area yet, but it won't be too long. We get rufous and caliope hummingbirds in profusion during the summer months.
Happy, happy birthday Mom!
