Spring is coming....

Well, we sprung ahead an hour and that is a good sign..We had rain all yesterday another good sign..This is getting exciting.
There is nothing more beautiful to me, than spring..All the flowers coming up, trees getting their leaves back and the birds return. Such a happy time.
I saw a nest, in one of my bushes from last year..I will watch for some action this year and have the camera ready. Many times the birds use the same nest.
The humming birds are fun too. I put a feeder on my patio door and we sit in the breakfast nook and watch them eat. I laugh when you see pictures of them sharing the feeder..that isn't the way it goes here. They dive bomb each other..All you see is a flash and off they go, chasing one another. Then one will venture back for the food.
They bring a lot of entertainment in this house.
It is amazing what joy we miss and it is right in front of us. Don't let this happen to you...Till next time, keep looking up.

I can smell spring in the air. It's faint, but it's there.

Can't wait!
