We have so many pairs of birds nesting right now. This Purple finch is nesting above our back staircase in the rafters. The male is colorful but of course the female is brown and white mostly. Hmmm...how did it happen to be that the male species in animals came to be so much more vibrant? We also have a pair of Morning Doves, Wrens, Robins and Warblers nesting in our birdhouses and vines. Hubby had to scare off a pair trying to nest in a tree on the front porch as that is where we will be spending a great deal of time and don't want to risk being dive bombed by them. lol Their song is sweet and soothing this time of year.
Life is being breathed into the gardens and the trees are waking up and bees are flying around. Spring is wonderful! We have soccer, baseball and basketball games going on now in the park across the street. It is fun to listen to them hooting, hollering and cheering.
The weather has been wonderful the past 3 days. 58, 73 and today 75 and sunny with a bit of a breeze. Perfect. If only I could find a home that was like this year round...daydreaming again. Sorry.
Oh yeah, there is a mermaid giveway going on over at Heavenleigh Art. She is so talented. Go have a look at her artwork. You'll see what I mean.
