K is for Kitchen Window

K is for Kitchen Window or
Where I did a Second Look from this week.

Well, actually I did go outside this week for a Second Look, but I also did a fair amount of looking through my kitchen window because of the weather. It has been cold, windy, and wet including some snow. Despite the more winter-like weather, everything is continuing to green-up. In fact, we cut the back forty last week, and the front of the yard could also use it's first cut. Maybe when it stops raining we can get to it.

Here are some things I saw this week 
during a Second Look.

Bleeding hearts

Bluebird pair. The bluebird nest continues to grow.

Tufted-Titmouse. Notice the bolt that Ward installed on the suet feeder. The squirrels had gotten into the habit of opening the door and carrying the entire cake off--even after we wired it shut. So far, they haven't been able to open this arrangement.

The peach tree blossoms are almost gone.

The woodpeckers have started on a new tree this year.

House sparrow

Spring wildflowers (otherwise know as weeds in some places). Dandelion, violets, dead nettle, chickweed, ground ivy.

Turkey vulture

Sunrise out the Kitchen window.
