Spring Has Arrived

Finally...spring has arrived in Jeffersonton.  One of my favorite trees in the yard is the Redbud that's in the back yard...isn't it lovely.  The daffodils are in bloom, the grass is green and the pollen is flying through the air. 

While walking through the yard, filling the birdfeeders and cleaning out the birdbaths I came across this...

the birdbath had been full of leaves until this past week when the wind was blowing and blew all the water and leaves out, I don't know if mama bird built a nest and it blew away or if some big bad bird took the egg from it's home.  It was cracked all around but not crushed, I gently picked it up with a paper towel and just that little pressure it broke and there was still baby yoke inside...kind of makes me sad but I guess that's nature.

I hope that spring is finally blooming in your neck of the woods and you get to see the beauty of nature all around you...

enjoy your day...
