Good mourning.

Ya gotta love Minnesota. I can't remember why, but ya just gotta. "Land of Eternal Winter", was that it? Something like that.

Here's what I woke up to today:

(Those vertical lines are from taking the pic through a screen.) It's still coming down. Let's just hope it's all melted by noon, like yesterday.

Did you notice the bird in the tree? Look closer:

It's a mourning dove. With its head tucked under its wing. Probably mourning the lost spring.

Here's a mourning robin, too:

Later I came back to see if the mourning dove was still there. This is what I saw:

Sweet, huh? Mourning together.

Poor birds. They've all been working so hard to build their nests lately. I hope they hold off on laying their eggs awhile, though. It's too cold!

Okay, enough of that. I hope. Anyway, I promise more colorful pictures next time!!

Our ground is white this morning.
