sharing


solo post - L

I have no photos of my own today. So today I'm sharing a photo I received from my brother this morning. He said there was a robin convention going on at his house. He had photos of them eating the berries off of his holly bush, birds in flight, birds with berries in their beak, etc. It was like I was there and could hear the bird song. I've heard people talking about seeing a lot of robins in their yard . I suppose many of us are more than anxious for spring to arrive and that the birds are giving us that hopeful sign.
Taylor called me this morning and told me about a new photo assignment she has. It sounds interesting and as always I can't wait to see what she comes up with. I love that she shares it with me and bounces her ideas off of me. And how I love the iphone now that it can receive photo text messages. She sent me this photo via text message to share the great location she found for her photo shoot. It looks like a great spot to me.

That's a great shot of the Robin! Sigh. I'm looking forward to seeing them in my yard!

I always love to hear about the wonderful relationship that you and Taylor have!

i am embarrassed to say that i get weepy when i see the first robin of the year. talk about winter depleting your emotions. good news, the boy will be home for a week on saturday. yay reading weeks.

the robins look happy and fat so far this year, even if they are a bit early with the cold. it reminds me that spring will be here before you know it.

there are two firsts of spring that my mom loves to see. the first dandelion and the first robin. she is always so happy when she see each.

i have not seen any robins yet, but when they do start to show up, they love to hang out on my garage roof, which i can see right out my dining room window -- where i sit at the computer. i await their arrival as much as i await spring... well, almost as much.

love the bird photo! you do take lovely bird pics.

Aren't robins the sweetest? It just amazes me when I watch them on the lawn, tilting their heads, listening for the movements of the worms underground. I can't believe they have that kind of sensitivity. So amazing.
