Two litle loves

I don't know if these are the same Morning Doves that keep coming back to our garden every year, but I suspect so .. otherwise it would be rather a fluke they took up their positions here.
That was this afternoon ... and now almost 6 PM they are still sitting on the arbor .. and it is snowing ... yet again. Poor little guys are as depressed and confused as we are with no let up of winter weather.

I just got back from a trip to Wal-Mart. Takes us about a half hour to get there. When I went in it was a normal day when I came out an hour later a blizzard had set up shop. It took us 1 1/2 hours to get home.

Snow Snow Go Away
Come again...NEVER!

I love mourning doves. Those poor things are just waiting it out, huh? Oh to have nature's patience. -Jen :)

Oh they are so sweet. Wouldn't they look cute with little red knitted caps on :-)

Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

How sweet. They look so cold.

They are a sweet couple. Just seems like they are resting and saying--boy, it sure is nice to be back!!

Hellooooo all you gardeners and especially my poor friends here in the great white north .. I think we NEED extra well? wishes ?
I got up this morning and wanted to fall on the kitchen floor by the deck door and CRY !!
And ............ the best is yet to come .. blizzard conditions warned for late this afternoon and night ? WTF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Those of a sensitive nature , don't ask what those abbreviations mean for your own good !

Gardenauthor .. my heart went out to these tow .. I think they are one of our long time pair that have our garden as home base when it is time for knoodling .. sweet birds trust us finally.

CJ ... my car is under snow AGAIN .. but hubby will give it one more cleaning .. heck .. he has to move it for the snow blower anyways .. Monday he sets off with friend for GOLF week in SC.

Jen .. I hate seeing them go through this blanking winter weather .. patience .. boy oh boy !

melanie ... now I can't get that picture out of my head .. I see red touques with maple leafs on both of them !!!

Deb .. I wish I could loan them my heating pad !

Anna .. it is amazing how long they will sit on that arbor .. hour after hour .. poor little bird joints must creak a lot !

wiseacre ... my god !!!!! You have to be RIGHT ! ... what a frigging nightmare of winter weather .. I am so fedup .. the bottle of icewine brandy is looking pretty good today ! hahaha

The doves are wonderful additions to the garden. But today I don't even think the doves will be visiting.
