A little bit of everything wonderful about spring! I like the angles of the tree shots. The birds are also great!

Beautiful. I've held siskins and chaffinches but never these beauties. Accidental birder, I can identify with that.

This post reminded me of a song I heard growing up - His Eye Is On the Sparrow.

"Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me..."

May He keep watch over you while you are traipsing across His beautiful world!! HURRY HOME. You're missing First Friday!

The little sparrow sitting on your hand - I couldn't breathe for fear he would fly away. What a lovely wee guy!

You are on my Favorite People list.
Hugs, Babe!
