For the Birds and Nature: It’s official! Spring is finally here!

Good Sunday morning!

So much has happened in the last weeks since my last post.  Spring is here! It actually feels as if summer has arrived!  It has been lovely these last couple of weeks. Gardens are being planted, many new birds passing through during their migration, and there is so much new life all around us.  I really do love this time of the year.  (minus the bugs, I really would like to live without the mosquitoes and blackflies!!)

As usual, I have taken quite a few photographs to share with you.  Please enjoy them below.

See you in June!  Happy Spring!
