My window...

A week ago, I looked up from my knitting/computer and I saw-- SKY.  Yes, a nighttime of cold and wind had removed the leaves that normally shade the backyard.  I was again looking into the field behind the house. (A great view btw considering the options:  no view (an interior cabin), the neighbor's house, or a brick wall.)
Today, as I read my morning mail, movement caught my eye. I wish I had a webcam, but alas, those horses ran right by without pausing for a picture, and now they are cavorting (as horses do) down by the river.  I expect them to reappear, but unless they do in the next 15 minutes, you'll just have to use your imagination.
I know nothing of horses (the fodder for another blog-post) but I'll paint a picture for you:  A white one, a tan one, some brown and white, a dark one.  They didn't stay in view for long...
However, today it's Starling-Invasion-Day.  Clouds of blackbirds, the whoosh of wings, the chatter, all this I would like to capture but alas... here's the glimpse.

It goes on for days/weeks.  Looking around the valley, they will be in sight.  It's pretty spectacular.  That huge cottonwood to the left holds "quite a few"!
The woodpeckers are back.  They are most noisy noticeable in Spring and Fall. And the leaves... where I started: I can see through the trees because of this:

Back to knitting!
Back to holiday music rehearsals...
