Every year, spring itself is like a huge surprise to me. After a long, gray winter, I’m always surprised at how stunning the bright green grass looks, and how breathtaking the sun looks, streaming through leaves. After many years of this, it seems that feeling wouldn’t happen, but it always does. More sun and more color=more happy.
And, sometimes, there’s a surprise right outside the back door. Like this robin’s nest. (Surprising, too, how fast the mama robin built the nest.) But the biggest surprise of all…
was this little guy. The nest was so high, that I had to reach up and point my camera into the nest, without a visual of what was inside. After I took the picture, THIS was what I saw on the screen (!) My favorite spring surprise so far.
What’s outside your back door this spring?
