Is this possible? How time flies!
This winter was the first we have spent at home in a while. But nature never fails to amaze, even at home:)
Hoppy was a permanent visitor, staying put under our Xmas tree during the day and roaming at night. Roger finally discovered Hoppy’s favorite food 🙂 broccoli!
They kept us company:)
And then, who are those mystery visitors?

A lonely goose with a broken wing roams our property.
But wait, a week later, her friends or off springs come to keep her company before…they say goodbye.
Will the lone goose survive the winter? We are told the cold is not a problem as long as there is open water. We feed it corn:)

Winter is truly on its way…Time for tuques and mitts
Globe thistles bloom early to everyone’s delight.
Lilies (for Lilli) soon follow…
Can’t wait to transplant those maples growing naturally among the ground cover…
This little chippie is begging for his morning treat…
Oh oh! Mother did not choose the best place to build a nest, and…she definitely underestimated the size of her chicks…
Who will get the last peanut?
The squirrel or the blue jay?
No summer is complete without…
an extraordinary rainbow.
Best of all, sun sets at 10:04 p.m.
Since pussy willows have been out for a while, we knew it was only a matter of time before bears would be crawling out of their dens in search of this precious nutrition. Sure enough, last night, we heard knocking on our window. We looked outside but could not spot anything at first. The second time we heard the noise, we knew it had to be an animal and of course we spotted a two year old cub walking in our shrubberies.
But then, this morning, we wondered what he thought about the overnight snowfall.
Was it excited like a child seeing snow for the first time? lol
Snow on this 30th day of Spring is not welcome. At least it was sunny:)
But by 11 a.m., oh no! More?
Not sure whether I should be happy or sad. Did I plant too early??
As we head home, earlier than expected, we are saddened by the fact that so many people have suffered in the early months of 2020. First the devastating tornados in Nashville, then the coronavirus. We have been fortunate, travelling in our motorhome and not being as impacted. We can only hope that better days are coming soon..
Although we did not expect many attractions to be open this early in the season, the Musicland campsite has been open since the beginning of the month. Today is especially warm, 80 F. Of course, no problem ever visiting the auto and farm museum. It is housed in a huge building. Not hard to spend some time here…
Some of us are also entertained by numerous signs on the walls..
Tonight, we walk across the road to the Haygoods show. What a treat! 5 brothers and one sister, super talents!They each play multiple instruments and the harmony is incredible.
The numerous birds chirping at the KOA, especially the robins remind us that spring is around the corner.
The Fantastic Caverns are next on the agenda.
What mineral formations!
We do not have an electric vehicle, but the campsite does have a plug-in. It also recycles. Commendable!
