SPRING - April Fools'??

"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."
Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)
Fisherman's Luck (1899)

Robin stalking worm in flower garden already!

We never know what the weather will be five minutes from now - but today was just a beautiful continuation of yesterday. We actually basked in 83.9 degrees of sunshine today.
My husband I hung all the Jenny Wren homes today - I do believe there were 13. It's always precarious finding just the perfect branch for the sweethearts but their melodic thank yous are the most perfect song all day long while they reside here.

My oldest daughter raises the neatest gourds and I use them for bird houses. We have many varieties, but here resides a photo of a smaller gourd perfect for a wren! The other style is the typical wren house we build here on the ranch.

I hope you are having a lovely spring day on this most solemn Holy Thursday.

  1. Yeah the Robins arrived. What a long trip and they dillie dallied along the way, and stayed twice as long in FL than they usually do. Glad they made it.
