For the Birds...

Elijah and I have been hoping to start doing some bird watching.
He received this bird feeder for Christmas.
It has a fetching copper roof and is cunning in it ability to fend off squirrels.
We haven't had any visitors yet.

I found a book on how to attrack birds to your yard.
I have hopes that we will have activity soon.


Spring is a time of year that I adore.
The fresh smell of newly tilled earth and the awakening of plants and animals for the growing season to come. The days are longer and there is a new warmth and goldeness to daylight.
David came in the front door on Saturday and told me to come look...my crocus and tulip bulbs, over 200 of them that I planted last fall, are satrting to push through the dirt and mulch. I am thrilled. I am looking forward to taking Elijah in hand and going for a walk around the yard to look and touch. I want him to experience Spring and nature first hand.
