Who's On My Fence!

Last night as I was pulling into my driveway, I looked up and saw an owl sitting right in front of me on my fence. Just sitting there, chillin'. I didn't think fast enough though because after I finished staring at him I reached for my camera but not in time. He flew away. I live in a city so I find this to be very strange. Although I have never seen an owl up close and personal like that, I always imagined that they live in forests. And occasionally offer advice to Tigger and Pooh. OK, at least the forest/wooded area seems realistic. Maybe this was a chic and sophisticated owl. He was very wise. I could just tell. I spent the rest of the evening making owl "who who" sounds to the puppy. She thinks I'm silly.

So I ran inside to quickly get the preppy puppy for our evening walk because....drumroll please.....it was STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE! I know, it's big, huge news! Having our clocks spring foreword has made the biggest difference for me this year. It's better than Prozac - just makes me so so happy to have it light outside when I am walking the dog at night. We took our long walk route and saw the first squirrel of the season. She was sooooo excited to have a little squirrel chase in the park. Nothing is more fun than chasing squirrels!

Ah, life is good at the PPC household. And I welcome my wise friend Mr. Owl to come back - at least long enough for me to take a picture of an owl hanging out on my fence in a city.

I too LOVE how it stays light so much later...makes me smile!
Now I just need the cold weather to go away and all will be good!

Thanks for visiting and saying hello. How neat to see an owl! It's too bad he didn't hang around for a photo. I hope he comes back.
I'm loving the DLT too..that extra hour of daylight is very welcome. Can't wait for the weather to warm up.
Our cats keep our yard mostly squirrel free, but we have one little fellow and enjoy him immensely! He's fun to photograph...very obliging.
Nice to meet a new 'neighbor' :)
Happy Easter!
