From the Overlook

A week into official "Spring" and the vista from the overlook at the top of the bluff still speaks of winter.

Spring Equinox

Baycrest Overlook

More snow today. Only about an inch or so accumulation but enough to freshen the ground cover.

Spring comes slowly in Alaska.

I stopped on my way into town this morning to take this picture at the overlook.

Our solitary pheasant is showing his breeding colors and crowing from the top of the wood pile but so far we have seen no sign to prove that he isn't the only living pheasant on Bluff Point.

We call him our "chicken" and he hangs around all winter taking advantage of the sunflower seeds we put out. One year I thought I would treat him to some chicken "scratch" feed but he turned his beak up at it.

he just prefers the sunflower seeds.

Signs of the pheasant on our back deck this morning.

Looks like he was confused...

It's Been A Long Winter

The marquee at the local theater made me smile.
