Mish Mash Monday

Well, it was back to work today after having 13 days off ~ and a busy day it was. It took me 19.07 minutes (thanks Liv, for noticing that seconds was too bionic for me!) to walk there in 2 degree weather this morning. It was even colder walking home with wind and icy rain.

I am going to post a mish mash of recent photos ~

Meet the frog ensemble, huddled together to keep warm, wondering when spring will arrive:

Hopping to another photo ~

A heart rock I brought home from the beach on one of the two nice days during Spring Break:

The red-breasted nuthatches have moved in to nest in the bird house at the bottom of the garden:

And there you go ~ Mish Mash Monday!

  1. What a good title! It's about time that cold weather moved on.
    That's a wonderful family of frogs you have, I like the look of Prince!
    You must be pleased that the nuthatches are nesting there again.
    Have a good week, and fingers crossed for warmer weather. xx

  2. Oh my gosh, are you bionic woman now, walking to work in 19 seconds...? ;)

    It was a pleasure to meet your froggie family, ribbit ribbit!

    I like the heart rock, what size is it?

  3. Those are some great nature photos. I love picking up shells and rocks from the beach but that one is particularly nice!

  4. Hi Flighty ~ I think Wednesday might be sunny :) Hey, that's tomorrow ~ My first blog birthday.

    The frogs haven't had a family gathering before, but they seemed to enjoy it ;)

    Yes, I'm very pleased to see the nuthatches back for another year. I took a video to record their 'song' that I might post.

    Hi Liv ~ Haha ~ 19.07 seconds...good catch! That's a riot. I knew it was a bit faster than usual, but no, that would still be 'minutes'...

    I was surprised to see how many frogs there were in this establishment!

    That was silly of me not to put something size-comparable beside the heart rock! Although I haven't actually measured it, I would guess at about 2 1/2 inches in width. One day I will set out an array of small, medium and large heart rocks (with accompanying measuring info)and take a photo.

    Thanks NWG :) I'm glad you like the wildlife shots, and my heart rock. I don't cart home as much from the beach these days (my pockets become too heavy!), but you're right, there's always some treasure to be found.

  5. Hehehe, as you can see, I'd be perfect for that document quality control job I'm interviewing for on Friday!

  7. Those frogs look like a pretty lively bunch to me! Your pebble looks a perfect heart shape, I am always on the lookout for similar on our local stretch of beach. I wonder whether the squirrel will share the peanuts with the family of nuthatches? I love to see wildlife in and around the garden. x

  8. Hi Louise ~ Working in a school environment, I seem to collect various stuffies, but the frog explosion seems to be taking over! I have many heart rocks and I'm trying to figure out what to do with them! I think I might make a border around my roses...or something like that! That particular squirrel was in the park, not my garden, but there I have seen one over the back fence. I think she has must have better-tasting peanuts!
