Signs of Spring

Our rains let up and the skies actually were blue today. We definitely had to head outside to have some fun and try to take in all the signs of Spring we could find.


The first thing that Selena found was an empty robins egg. She looked hard to see if she could find the nest, but no nest could be found. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if the nest isn’t in the tree behind her swing set since that is where we found the egg, but the tree is getting thick enough with leaves that we could not find it.


Selena wondered if the egg came from the nest above her bedroom, but I explained that those are not robins but sparrows. It won’t be long though that we might find broken eggs and hear the peeps of the baby birds. It is funny though as I take the dog out every morning and we round the corner of the house here, these sparrows swoop out of the nest. I know they are there and so does the dog, but it still makes us jump and of course Pal has to bark.


The cherry trees are very pretty with their white blossoms. We found many more signs of Spring through out the yard.



Then of course we just had to take some fun time taking pictures and playing. It sure was nice to be able to venture outside, and we sure hope that the nice weather sticks around awhile so we can have much more outside time.

  1. I love the picture of the two of you together, both wearing glasses. It's good that you are having some warm weather finally. We have the first heat wave now.
