Let it snow.

I hung a “Let it snow” garden flag in my yard this winter because, well, it was cute.

I regret that decision. Why? I tempted the fates. See below:

OK, to be honest, I still love the flag. It’s really cute. I also love snow. It looks pretty as well.

I just don’t like driving in it. So wish me luck in driving to work tomorrow. Hope you all keep safe and warm as well.

Office visit

"Oregon" Dark-eyed Junco1

This “Oregon” Dark-eyed Junco visited my work this week during a cold wave in Northeast Arkansas. The junco seemed unfazed as a gust of wind would ruffle its feathers every so often.

An icy weekend



American Robin

Our first winter storm blew into Arkansas early Thursday afternoon keeping me at home this past weekend. I’m not complaining — I enjoyed it. Outside ice-covered everything and we had few visitors except for cardinals, a finch, an American Robin and dozens of White-Throated Sparrows.

Photo bomb!


I was taking pictures of a new building under construction when I noticed a falcon weaving in and out of the building through the building’s fourth floor empty window frames.

It was an American Kestrel, my first to see in Jonesboro.
