green

This week I found myself being filled with gratitude for green. The little heat wave we had earlier this week forced all the green out at last. The heat was sweltering without our green canopy that we are accustomed to when temperatures go over 90. But now that bright, fresh, springtime green is everywhere with a few accents of pink thanks to the redbuds and tulips and blue thanks to the wild lobelia, violets, and the few grape hyacinths that are left.

I love how redbuds bloom right on the large branches and even the trunk.
 There are little orange leaves that have just started coming out too.

The birds are in heaven and their songs are in full force as well. There are a couple of birds that are making themselves right at home. A phoebe has made a really darling nest on top of the light in our shed. And a little wren knew not to pass up the golden opportunity of a woven grass birdhouse that hangs next to our kitchen window.

Happy May Day!

May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that's always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through. ~Irish blessing
