daffodils and owls

Beautiful late afternoon light, the beginnings of a gorgeous sunset cast a lovely glow on the mini daffodils today before dinner....

This really does feel like spring.....and while weeding in the garden this afternoon, the owls were a hootin' and a hollerin' in the surrounding forest...a sure sign of spring!  Sounds like owl mating season is on and in this neck of the woods, we hear them all night long at this time of year.  I just love them.  They're great mousers!  Better than cats.  I've read that 2 adult owls with young can catch around 1000 mice in a season!!  Now that's amazing!  This is why they like to hang out on my garden fence posts....they're looking for mice. Thank you owl friends for helping my peas grow.  The natural world is simply awesome.
