Happy Spring!





















It is so nice to welcome Spring. I live in New England and it has been a cold and wet winter but I really can't complain considering what some people are going through right now with all the crazy weather patterns. Hopefully, soon we will all be basking in the warm rays of the sun and enjoying all the outdoor activities. I am actually looking forward to some outdoor spring cleaning and of course decorating. We have to start getting the backyard ready for those long summer nights. Ahhhh. Good Times!!!

As I think about Springtime, it makes me think about new beginnings, fresh starts, birth and life. Last year in the later part of spring heading into summer my older son, then 6yrs old, was delighted to discover a birds nest with 3 robins eggs inside. The nest was carefully and lovingly built and hidden under the stairs of our deck heading towards the pool. We were so careful not to touch it or disturb the nest in any way. Daily we could go and take a peak to check on the eggs. Every time we did, the mama and daddy birds, kept a watchful eye on us but they still let us gently approach and enjoy their precious little eggs. I guess they new we would be careful as we all eagerly awaited them to hatch. It was such a beautiful and amazing thing to witness. One night I was having a party at the house but my son told me we had to go and check on the eggs, I am so glad I listened to him and joined in his enthusiasm. Two of those beautiful blue-green eggs had hatched. There was one more egg that just needed a little more time and the other newly hatched baby birds provided it with love and warmth. The next morning we were eager to see another miracle and we did, and then there were three. I am happy to say, we took some photos of this sweet miracle and I can now share them with you. My son and my husband and I learned so much from being able to see something like this up so close. It was truly a gift to witness the miracle of life. I hope seeing these photos brings a smile to your face, happiness in your heart and a reminder how beautiful life really is, and to savour all the miracles!!!

I think baby birds fall into the 'so ugly they're cute' category. Nice pictures.
