Willy Nilly Friday, February 23, 2018

Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, and Floral Friday Fotos,
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters, and I'd Rather B Birdin'

1. Sunshine! (Sky Watch Friday)
Corinth, Mississippi, USA, February 18, 2018
After an entire week of rain, Sunday morning was bright and sunny!

2. Wildlife (Saturday's Critters)
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, February 22, 2018
When the turtles crawl out of the water to sun on the rocks, you know Spring is coming.

3. Farming
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 22, 2018
Winter Wheat is planted in the Autumn and harvested in late Spring or early Summer.
It sure brightens up cloudy Winter days!

4. Spring Beauty (Floral Friday Fotos)
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, February 19, 2018
Claytonia virginica, Spring Beauties, are tiny wildflowers that grow close to the ground.

No bigger than the tip of your finger, you have to bend over or kneel down to appreciate them.

5. Favorite Photos of the Week (I'd Rather B Birdin')
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, February 17, 2018
Red-tailed Hawk, Buteo jamaicensis

This is the same Hawk. It flew up, made a circle, and settled down on another fence post.

Have a wonderful day!

  8. don't you just love it when the rain finally stops and the sky is actually blue. Nice shots and that Hawk is studying you.

  9. Pretty shots - it will be a long time before anything starts to grow where I live!

  10. Hello Lea! Pretty skywatch! I love the cute flowers. The turtles are a nice sighting, your temps must be warmer there for the turtles to be out. Great sighting and capture of the Red-Tailed Hawk. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  11. Spring Beauties! Oh yes, spring has arrived for you! They don't bloom here until late April/early May. They are so dainty and special with their pink pollen. Nice hawk photos, too!

  12. Beautiful photos!!! Alas you will have spring before we do, but I am happy for you! After the bad winter your area has had, you deserve it! beautiful red-tail!

  13. Beautiful post! Love seeing the green wheat field and those flowers. I sure am ready for spring!

  14. The little turtle looks like he is aiming to push the big one off into the water! Could they be brothers spoiling for a fight?

  15. The red-tailed hawk is beautiful and regal! And that green wheat field is the greenest green ever -- just beautiful; I am sure it MUST brighten up the winter!! I hope the turtles are right and Spring is just around the corner.


I enjoy your comments!
