Is That Snow on the Central Coast Or Is It Just Spring??

While walking along a local bike trail yesterday, we came across an unusual sight. I exclaimed, "It looks just like snow". Just then a young boy on a bike rode by and exclaimed, "It looks just like snow"!! Where have I heard that before!!

It does look like snow, doesn't it??

But, it's 70 degrees outside, so it can't be snow.

Oh, take a closer look. It's Spring, the seeds have sprung and are flying all over. How amazing is nature??

Further up the path we played peek-a-boo with a heron hiding in this tree!!

When we returned home this cute little dove was waiting for us. His companion got spooked and flew away. This pair of Mourning Doves have been frequenting our front yard. I'm surprised he let me get so close. Do they know I'm the one that fills the bird feeder and I'm happy they came to visit??

Cindy, on the third picture, it looks like diamonds.

What a chance you get to have these doves as visitors. It looks like your house is blessed.

I agree, diamonds. We have the real deal here, not diamonds but snow. And wind so cold it takes the breath away. I loved the clover peeking through the diamonds. A real Irish photo, even though St. Paddy's Day was last week.

Mourning Doves are my favorites! What a lovely walk.
