Hello Spring!

The window-robin is back! So far there is one egg. Sorry for the dirty window. It doesn't open and it's on the second floor. No way to clean it. 
Here's dad, waiting for me to get out of the window.

I did get covid, but my husband and I are better now, and both testing negative.  Yesterday I did a bit of painting on the packets I've been working on.

I love getting outside. Spring makes me a bit wild. Like a sensory overload of all my favorite things: birds singing, flowers, the smell of cut grass, peepers and frogs singing, leaves again...and being able to dig in dirt. It's all wonderful....

I love my little patch of may apples.

 I hope you are enjoying the spring and warm weather. Take care, and thanks for visiting!

Sensory overload for sure! I've got it too! How wonderful that the robins have returned to the windowsill. I am sure they enjoy looking down on your beautiful gardens. I know I do! I love the little packets!

Your pictures are so full of life. I love your artwork on the envelopes, Debra. And your rock garden is just gorgeous. I'm enjoying my back yard, too, but yours has a special lovely privacy to it.

How nice your robin has the nest and at least one egg! Your art works are so sweet and thank you for sharing, as well the beautiful spring photos.
Our NATO application will be sent next Tuesday :))
Happy weekend to you xx

This is my fourth time trying to leave a comment. I was about to give up. How lovely to see Mr. Robin. I guess he helps keeping the eggs warm and safe.

Your garden is gorgeous. I want one like yours. It is beautifully landscaped. It's been years since I've seen bleeding hearts. They are gorgeous. I am in awe of your lovely spring garden.

I was sorry to read you had Covid. I am glad both you and your husband are doing much better. Bless you, dear.

Debra it sounds to me like we both have a disease of "spring fever". Glad to read that you are doing better after the virus. Your robin's nest will certainly bring you lots of joy just watching those babies hatch. Love your art on the envelopes. What a great way to display the lovely spring birds and flowers. I hope you enjoy every moment digging in the dirt. Hugs! said...

Lovely packets, garden looks great too.
