I am a quilter - a retired widow living in the Nebraska Panhandle. I am surrounded by beautiful semi-arid ranch country, and treeless hills and fields under incredibly wide blue skies, located far from the upheaval found often in large towns or cities. I am blessed to have delicious time to quilt and to appreciate my peaceful moments in an unpeaceful world.
Signs of Spring 2015, and an Owl Pair are visiting
These little jewels (above) have been visiting us, sporadically, choosing our evergreen tree. They are not the least bit concerned with our presence. One is larger than the other - we presume this is a male and female. We have heard from neighbors that screech owls have been in this neighborhood for many years.
These look like my tulips, planted in a sunny place. It's somewhat early for spring here, but weather has been warm and balmy for the last 2 weeks. We are in western Nebraska, at 4000 ft. elevation, so spring usually comes later than we would like.
These are daffodils. I was careful last year to NOT trim them back at all after flowering, as they were somewhat puny. We'll see if that technique will improve them this year..
