A Trip

February 6, 2015

Where am I?


Nope. Guess again.


Lake Michigan?

Nope. How about now?


The prairie?

Yes!! Waves of white blanketed the prairie after a particularly windy storm. I like February in Michigan.



The sun setting on the last day of January.

Because it is short, and spring is right around the corner.

I read an article in the paper about a veteran weather watcher, Mr. Ray Hackman, who believes that
regardless of what the groundhog had to say about it, spring will arrive earlier this year, perhaps
by early March!

Aaaah……….balm to my soul.


So take a good look at the pretty white stuff because its days are numbered. Flowers, fragrance and
birdsong are heading our way.


Actually, if one knows where to look, there are already signs of spring. Come with me, to the neighbors, and I will show you.

You may recall, last fall Chester had lost most of his long feathers and was just beginning to grow new ones in preparation for
the spring breeding season.


Well, look at him now!

I’d say, he is ready.


Can you tell which one is Chester?


Me neither.

The females, called peahens, have aqua green necks and are much more skittish than their fancy fellows.


Here is a youngster.


I hope you enjoyed your trip to peacock palace. Legend says seeing a peacock brings good luck.


Be ready, it’s heading your way.
