1. The birds have begun building nests under our porch eaves. It's hard to get good photos, as the birds move so fast and won't come around if I am standing on the porch, but I was able to snap this shot through the window from inside the house. Can you make out the little twig in the bird's mouth?
They appear to be at the beginning stages of building three or four nests. The nests are mostly dirt and moss at this point.
4. A number of bulbs and other yellow flowers in our yard are starting to bloom. I never realized what a mood lifter flowers are until this year!
magnolia and dogwood trees we ordered from Arbor Day. Fern is a good lady, and hangs out in the grass with Josh while he works. Riley, on the other hand, slips off to the neighbor's house every time we turn our backs to taunt the dogs behind their fence. That little sneak.
Hope you are all enjoying beautiful spring weather. What are the markers that make it finally feel like spring to you?
