The north winds are howling today. I finally got the leaf and limb cleanup crew to come today and I doubt they'll come due to this blow. It is literally howling. Wouldn't you know.
The starlings have arrived and are fighting over the suet cakes. Must be their favorite meal. Though their vocalizations are not as pretty as a songbird's call, I don't mind theirs'.
I took these pictures last year at the farm. They were everywhere. It is something to see how they lift off at the same time; a rare treat to see their murmurations.
Spring is coming, though I can't tell today. The bulbs are finally peeking up through the earth. I had to water, since the ground was so dry. The ground needs rain, but I didn't say that.
