A quote for Monday. . .
"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples."

YOU KNOW IT'S SPRINGTIME WHEN. . .
The mallards are back at our pond . . .
The Vinca blooms. . .
The turtles bask in the sun . . .
The daffodils grow taller . . .
The Phoebe sings atop the Hemlock tree . . .
The Pussy Willows emerge . . .
The Lilies poke through the earth. . .
And our horses lie down in the sun.
The greening of the earth is upon us . . . a time for new beginnings. I begin
with my blog. I feel refreshed from my winter's rest.:)
Happy day! Happy

Have you made a NEST HELPER for the bird's yet? It's not too late!
We recycled chicken wire this year, cut it into squares and formed different shapes.
Next we went on a nature walk and collected dried grasses, feathers, leaves, small twigs and pine needles. We also added angora rabbit fur, horse hair, and two inch pieces of yarn.
We attached a longer string to hang it from a branch outside so the birds can take what they need for their nest.
See what we made last year
, and the year before
It is fun to watch to see what the birds choose. Give it a try!
