Signs of Spring

Today the weather was wonderful, after a week of steady, grey dampness. So naturally I spent it outdoors, clearing off our decks, raking leaves out of the garden beds and generally just soaking up the sunny warmth of it all.

I found a fern in the back yard--no idea how it got there, as we haven't ever had them in the 14 years we've been here. And then tonight as I was waiting for dinner to cook I looked out the window and saw this guy.

This was the only shot I could get of him before he saw me and took off for a higher branch, with The Wife.
