Front Door/Back Door Meme for February

OK, that C-Lee thinks that she is really going to get me into this blogging stuff. She has tagged me with this photo meme. This is the view out my front door. I love the two evergreens down by the road. They offer great cover for all the birds flying back and forth to the feeders on the left side of the house. There is not too much visible on all the other shrubs from this distance, but up close you can see all the buds that promise color for the spring and summer.
Out my back door we see lots of snow. It is packed close to two feet deep in places where we
have snowshoed trails all around the yard. I love
the gate in back by the shed that leads off into the woods and many trails and ponds. We use those trails more often in winter when the ticks are not so numerous. From the photo you would not know that the birds are singing their Spring
mating calls and that the red-winged blackbirds
have returned already. In the shed is stashed
all the agility equipment. But before we can fill the yard with our obstacles we have to wait for many warmer days for much melting to occur. What I don't like about our yard is a lot of shade and we sometimes have the last patches of snow in Eastern Mass. Then will come the mud.
Here are the rules: This is a photography meme
1. Step out your front door and take a picture.
2. Step out your back door and take a pictute.
3. Put them on your blog along with the rules.
4. If there are things in the photo that you particularly like or dislike, you can point them out
or just explain what you are seeing.
5. Tag another person.
6. Do it again next month if you like.
Wherever you live you see something different than the rest of us.

Hey Nancy,

Thanks for viewing. I was having a touch of blog envy the other nite and decided to try my hand at it. Gotta say it is kinda fun and now that I know yours I can view from time to time.

Thanks again and see you when shows start...

Well Nancy, I will take a shot of my yard again after mother nature dumps a foot of snow on us again..
I gotta tell ya how nice it was to be able to walk around the yard and not have to deal with snow... Anyway, it is frozen this morning so there is no mud and with the snow coming, Hhhmm, oh well. Little Brio must love the romping in it though. I am trying to decide if I should snowblow paths for the 4 short legged dogs or let them think they are huskies.... Time will tell.... Give that baby a squeeze for me and can't wait to meet her..
