Spring is just about to spring --

Suddenly I'm hearing . . . birds!  On the California Coast, you would think the birds would hang around all winter, and I guess some do.  Mostly we hear the raucous cries of seagulls, which is bracing in a living-by-the-ocean kind of way, but they don't really uplift the heart.  Today, for the first time, I hear the beautiful song of the mockingbird that returns to us each spring.  I love it so much --

With all the bursting into life that Spring brings, it seems to me a much more positive time for making resolutions than in the dark of winter on January 1st.  I'm going to think about my resolution today -- what would your Spring Resolution be?

What a great idea: Spring Resolution! That totally makes more sense than doing it in January! I've been wanting to get fit and it's so much easier to do once the weather warms up. That's my spring resolution! :)

Beautiful photo!

Thanks for your bird tips. Good to know we have missed the tough years :) I am a little concerned about such a big change for her at this age, we shall see. We're traveling south to get her in a week :)

I love, love, love the way your framed the quote with the evergreen boughs. I'm sure they grew that way just for you, right? ;-)

That's right, lol. The thing about a redwood forest (maybe the same in a different kind of forest?) is that you get such contrasts between what's lit and what's unlit. That can make for pretty cool highlighting of one thing or another.

A delightful interpretation and quote. Bravo
