Mid April/ Nature Notes

Mid April 2001


This sparrow is singing its little heart, out and why not? Look at all the flowers...finally. In my gardens this week (moving clockwise): hepatica, crocus, lungwort, glory of the snow and hellebores.

Please visit Michelle at Rambling Woods for more NATURE NOTES.

Nice, outside my window the birds are singing here, too. I think it is the goldfinch I'm hearing, though.

Songs are so nice to hear this time of year. Songs are also associated with finding mates, pairing off and filling built nests with eggs. The flowers are like the table cloth that dresses up the dinner table. Nice post.
