All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.  Marie Curie

I love the Spring and I'm so glad I am here to see all it's spender.  I never get tired of each precious miracle that Nature has to offer me.  On the home front, most of my "Winter" birds are gone.  I have about 40-50 Goldfinch eating me out of house and home. They make my heart sing, such cheerful pretty birds, but aren't they all?!  My cardinal "flock" has dispersed.  Males have gotten very territorial. I still have a pair of Mallards coming to the pond at least once a day.  I had a single female Purple finch.  Toads have been in the pond singing their little hearts out.  Chipping Sparrows have returned.  I've seen Prairie and YR Warblers. All my bulbs came up for the first time ever.  It's so wonderful to be alive to experience it all!
