Hope

Today is a day of hope, with the blog community focusing their thoughts and energy on Miss Judi, a very special blogger who loves to "hat" our furry friends. She's facing a major health challenge, and we are all honoring her today.
Please leave Miss Judi comments of encouragement and hope at her blog.

It was a day of hope for us too. Our hope is that K will still be here and be able to romp in the spring, after the relentless winter winds finally leave us for the season. The winds flapped K's ears today.
But, in the midst of that wind, we saw a couple of very hopeful signs. We saw buds on an aspen tree in the foreground with the snowy and wintery mountains as the backdrop.
And, we saw Mountain Bluebirds. I actually squealed with surprise and happiness. At this time of year, they come up to our higher elevation for the brief warm spells and then return to the flatlands when cold weather returns here. They are a classic sign of spring that I watch for every single year.
Yes, there's hope...

  3. We were squealing at our house today because of bluebirds too! We seem to have a bonded pair hanging out around our bluebird houses and have our fingers crossed that they stay.

  8. So nice to see spring, as it is autumn here and the leaves are starting to fall.

    When there is spring to look forward to there is always hope - so we hope K enjoys your spring (and hope that she will also enjoy photos I'll post in six months of spring here to show here what is ahead for her next year).

    Love and woofs,
    Riley

  27. Yes, let's hope for all that you mentioned. It hit the 50's in Minnesota today. There has been a constant sound of drip, drip, drip all day.

  28. A post of hope is one I like - I'll send my good wishes to Miss Judi. Meanwhile, don't let K & R blow away - so windy here in the mts!

  29. Hi Y'all,

    So glad you're seeing signs of spring.

    Love the picture of K with her hat. I defied my Human to put one on me, so she just settled for leaving prayerful wishes on Miss Judi's site.

    We have nesting birds here in the southeast. Hopefully I'll get some baby bird pictures on my Friday post. My Human took them Monday.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
