Spring looked a little funny this morning
Posted By: Heinrich Lohmann, 04-10-2008, 03:37 PM

Out of our kitchen window:



And this was out of the livingroom window:



But than in all this misery I saw the first Robin of the season but he would not sit for a portrait.

I heard about the snow - for a change we did not get it. I feel for ya. At least it will not last. Great captures as always - love the Bird.

I love the robin picture, Heinrich. When I was a boy, I remember my Mom would fill with joy when she saw the first robin.

Thanks Heinrich, at least somebody has got it worse than us. It's been a miserable cold wet spring so far here (except today, but I had to work and OT too :cries: ) Like the first one and the robin of course.

Thank you and inbetween you and me, this is nothing out of the ordinary but everyone likes to complain about it. Last year we had a big dump of snow on May 25 when a lot of trees were in full bloom and it did do a lot of damage.

Take care,
