Songs of Life


Spring is on its way. A bird built this nest in the crook of one of our Bradford Pear Trees in the backyard. I haven't seen a bird there yet, but I hope to catch one soon. What worries me is that it is quite close to the ground.

I have been seeing signs of spring for the past few days. The grass is quite green. . . Daffodils are in full bloom. . . The Bradford's buds are ready to burst open. . . Tulip stalks are out of the cold ground. . . The willow trees are starting to get that beautiful, spring green tint. . .The calves are chasing each other in the field behind our street. . . The air is warming up (and hopefully it will stay that warm!).

Less than one week of winter!

Yes, the annual display by the Bradford's will start any day. I like your phrase "The Bradford's buds are ready to burst open" ... I'll have to keep an eye out for calves chasing each other.

Do you think it's a nest made this year? Here, in Western France, birds are still at work!

Is Spring on the way? Well, Nashville is a bit ahead of us, though birds keep trying to build a nest in our clothes dryer vent.

This one is awesome!

Reminds me of a nest in my tack room that was refurbished and used every spring by a pretty little bird.
