May Flowers

Here we are entering the last full week of April with May right around the corner.  Time passes too quickly.  Today I will enjoy a hike with my son.  He is an avid birder and we'll walk for hours through the woods, fields, and wet lands looking for an elusive warbler or kinglet.  I cherish these quiet times with him ... sharing our love of birds.  I think back on the times my mother and I would sit at the window while she would identify a bird outside for me.  Last year we had a Rose-breasted Grosbeak stop briefly at our feeder - a bird I had not seen in more than 30 years.  I ran around the house yelling "Rose-Breasted Grosbeak! Rose-Breasted Grosbeak!".  Surely the rest of the family thought I was crazy but my son came running and we celebrated our luck together.  

A little something to share with you today ... 

I hope you too have a moment to enjoy peaceful times today ...

Glittery Pink Crown ...

It's so nice to be blogging again.  I know I have so much to catch up on and I do apologize if it seems I've fallen off the edge of the earth.  I had to take a break for a while as life itself was overwhelming.  Too many things to do ... at home, with family, and at the office.  It's been a crazy month but I do believe I'm over the worst of the scheduling nightmares.  What a relief.

Here's a little something to share ... created for my good friend Sheryl  You can never go wrong with a glittery pink crown, right?

Thanks for stopping by!
