I HAD A SUPER BONUS DAY AND I FOUND GOLD!




Hi Everybody!!
WOW-What a great bonus day I had for February 1!  Somebody messed up, as lots of rain was projected for all day. What you can clearly see is sky blue skies breaking out of cloud cover and big sunshine which I am sharing with all of my frozen neighbors up North.  Of course, I went on a treasure hunt for Gold and I found it! Goldfinches, to be exact. These darling migrant songbirds are here with the cardinals, munching on seeds. Also, the winter hummer, 'Lone Ranger',  makes his first appearance in February. I wish you all super bonus days. Enjoy!
