Two Birds in the Bush

Two Birds in the Bush
is worth
one
sweet sky watch
*
I didn't notice the sun-sparkled tree until I looked at this photo.
It reminds me of the quote at the beginning of the book Journey, by Patricia MacLachlan
{Photography is a tool for dealing with things everybody knows about but isn't attending to.}
~  Emmet Gowin ~
Our sweet Robins return.
and
The Blackbirds sing.
{The breeze in the trees made it tough for the zoom to keep focus} 
a sweet birdsong
I gather these
and they warm my soul
as I watch the last drops of winter flow away
{hopefully}

Dear Family and Friends,
I hope this weekend puts a spring in your step!


Thank you to our Sky Watch Friday hosts:

Ah yes...the signs of life! I love that, I just got back from a long walk and it felt and smelled so wonderful! Love that you looked up and saw all these wonderful signs of life, thanks for sharing. :D

The robins usually stop here for a little rest on their way up north, but I haven't seen them this year. They must have been in a hurry to get home!
The pussy-willows are so sweet. I do wish we had them here in south Texas. Thank you for sharing yours Maria.

Sweet Maria!
I loved this post!
Oh how I love the birds!
We've been seeing lots of robins on our walks...very busy!
Prepping for babies I would assume.
So sweet!
We also see Eagles...which is something we new for me.
The other day we saw a pair of eagles way up in a douglas fir singing the sweetest love song to one another.
There again...prepping for spring babies I would imagine!
Loved the sweet bird singing!
Love knowing that came from YOU!
xxooxx
Happy Friday tomorrow!
xxooxx

Your sun-sparkled* tree is amazing! What is it about birds? I so love them and I love trees as well. The tree-trunk cannot be awry enough to me.... adorable.
Anyway, I'm sending you a lot of Spring sparkles*, sweet Maria. No matter where we live, this weekend will most definitely put a Spring in our steps! xoxo

Your post and all the pictures are great. My favorite is the one with the robin. That is so neat and shows his bright breast.

Beautiful...I watch for the first Robin to come back and really and truly I do not think they went away this year ...I have seen them ALL winter long which I have never before. Our winter has been so so mild...only one day of snow..unlike you my sweet friend. Thank you for visiting me while I was away. xoxoxo

Nice sights and sounds of spring. The snow is gone from the front (south facing) yard, and in the river valley we saw our first mountain bluebirds & heard our first western meadowlarks: spring will not be denied.
