February 9, 2018!

I realized I hadn't shared a view from the lobby this month and it has become a lovely sunny day! Can you see something under the tree near the water?
 A couple of ducks taking in the sunny warmth on this chilly day.  We've had nesting pairs in our courtyard since at least 2000!
 A slightly different angle before heading out.
 If you look closely you can see the mail has his eye one me, she is also but has nestled down a bit more.
 Some snowdrops in one of the courtyard gardens.
 That peach rose is fully opened in the sun.
 Some yellow crocuses are joining the party.
 I shared some of the bud on the daffodils, but they are opening up.
 Just in time to celebrate my birthday!
 Love the profile as they open up.
 Reaching towards the moving sun.
 Rita has some gorgeous Hellebore showing off in the sunshine.
 A beautiful plum rose colour.
 A robin helped me celebrate the day.
 One of my favourite flowering trees the winter flowering viburnum.
 So pretty against the blue skies.
 They have a lovely fragrance.
 So delicate but strong to bloom at this time of year.
 The fragrance is lovely.
 Found some Hellebore flowers in our gardens also.
 You never know what you'll find on a walk.
 These look so healthy and full bloomed.
 A chickadee just outside of the window across from my condo.
 Working on some orphan blocks for a project.
 I cut extra flowers when I made my down the rabbit hole quilt and decided to have fun putting them together for my next project.
Off for a day retreat tomorrow.  Have never attended this event so hoping to have some fun photos to share when I get back.  Have a great weekend!

It is so nice to have that in your complex and the views in your area, wish I could just go outside for a walk without driving.
Perfect day to enjoy your birthday and I can't believe you have so many blooms already. We are still cold and it snowed a little tonight. I hope you had a wonderful Birthday Day.

I can't believe you have spring flowers already! I have a few bulbs pushing the tips through the dirt, as of Friday, but nothing around here is blooming yet. After all the rain of the ten days forecast, there will perhaps be some coming out. Maybe not. Thanks for sharing.
