Budding of some Selected Bushes in April
This is going to be a research project on the budding development of some of the bushes in our backyard. Every week for four weeks in a row, I will take pictures of the same buds, which I have clearly marked with a red ribbon. Each week when I publish a new set of pictures, I will stack them on top of the displays of the previous weeks to allow the viewer an opportunity to follow the magical development of the budding process we enjoy every spring. Enjoy. P.S. It is not too late to start your own research process in your neck of the woods.

Birds of the Arrow Lake
For this second part I selected a few birds that live at the water or near the water. Among the water fowl the Canada goose is most common bird around here. Spending more time in the dry bush is the grouse. The mallard duck prefers secluded ditches as long as they are filled with water and offer hiding places. The merganser loves the lake and would not be anywhere else, while the kingfisher likes to look at the lake from above. Enjoy.

Dear blogging friends, soon I will have a more reliable connection to the Internet. I am looking forward to be able to comment and respond to all your posts, which have become so dear to me over the past couple of years. In the meantime, I would like to thank one and all for your amazing patience and those lovely comments you wrote when I managed to post another episode of the Klopp family story. Greetings from the beautiful Arrow Lake, BC, Canada!
