Spring really is here!

The weather has been great the past few days - so in addition to being out side from dawn to dusk - we took time out to sit on the porch and watch the animals. It's our hillbilly version of the discovery channel - with no commercials.

There is a huge hemlock off the side of the porch - and for the past 3 years we have watched a nest of robins - and this year is the same - I am going to try to take pictures as they develop. We watched them take turns sitting on the nest and looking for worms. Once they are hatched they dive bomb us if we walk under the tree - but as soon as the babies leave the nest we can walk without holding a hand over our heads :) It's a small inconvenience compared to the hours of joy they bring us.
