Back to blogging...

I've been gone from my blog for a little while which is always unusual for me. It always means that life has been too full for me to take the time to write about it. 
And when life gets that way, I have a hard time jumping back in because I feel the need to tell you all that has happened, but it's too much and I don't know where to start. 
Suffice it to say for now that all is very well and I am getting back to my art and my knitting and am enjoying the sunny and milder weather here in Savannah.
Our yard has been busy with many birds and the occasional baby raccoons to keep us entertained.
I've been keeping the closeup camera lens handy so I can snap a few pictures when I see lots of activity in our garden.
I love the splash of color the male cardinals provide in a winter garden!

And here's some sunshine for you! Our daffodils are blooming. Can you believe it?!?
I hope you are all doing well and that I'll get to visit your blogs soon!! I've missed you and am glad to be back to my blogging routine...

  6. Daffodils already! Love those baby raccoons. Glad they are in a tree. We had some that took up residence down our chimney!! We thought we would never get them out!!

  7. Baby raccoons - how adorable are they! And daffodils already, now you have me almost green with envy :-D

  8. Oh Gosh - those baby raccoons are gorgeous! Our Snowdrops are just about peeping their white heads out.

  9. I also love the baby raccoons but the shot of the cardinal just landing, that would have made me so happy to capture that!!
    We also have some daffs coming out now, hasn't our weather in Georgia been crazy?!

  10. Hi Silke,
    I'm so glad you left me a comment so I could stop by and "meet" you! Your blog is lovely. I enjoyed your pics of nature and I look forward to following you! Thank you for sharing a glimpse of your beautiful life with us!
