The beginning of January and a layer of snow is on the ground,but that doesn't mean I have no colourful flowers in my life.
My dear Hubby loved all things beautiful and he bought me several flower sculptures. Apparently these are supposed to become more valuable as time goes on and I now know that this is true. They may not have more monetary value,but I cherish them because he chose them for me.
I have them sitting in a china cupboard with mirrors and so I see at least twice the beauty from them.
I have always loved roses and this one is so delicate and beautiful.
One year for my birthday I received this long-stemmed rose from Jake.Now if he had given me a live rose it would have died,but this one is mine to still enjoy every day.
Just another closer shot of the delicate pink rose.I love these and the bird sculptures he gave me over the years. Someday,I will take pictures of the birds and share them.
A drive through the Pembina Valley a few weeks ago gave me this picture.
I look at this and all I can think is that in about 6 weeks the hawk migration should be starting. Yeah!!!
The action is right along this road and I can't wait.
Soon this is what we will be enjoying over the valley,and I can hardly wait.I only hope that the birds will cooperate this year and come through in record numbers.
You can be sure that I will be there,camera in hand, ready to capture the ones that do show up.
I wonder if you can see me smiling as I look forward to the annual Raptor Migration and Count?
This is a special time of year which I enjoy a lot.
