Today has given me a few “wow” moments. I feel like I have won the lottery! I had the pleasure of waking up to Skype with Gavin. This started the day off correctly. We had a little chat about how he misses hearing the cardinals and that it wouldn’t be long until he is waking up to them singing for him in Minnesota!
After our Skype, I have been watching and viewing Mother Nature at its finest!
The flowers are bursting forth with blossoms and the birds have been so active the past few days; waking me up with their sweet songs.
When, I looked out my window this morning and saw the return of the vibrant, yellow coloring on the gold finches at the feeder it truly made me thankful for my eye sight!
Our Sweet Conclusions Gold Finch Card
My once a year pleasure in May is the return of the Baltimore Orioles vibrant orange! I had placed the grape jelly out for them last night and they already found it this morning!
For you that follow along with Sweet Conclusions, you may recall that last year we had the distinctive pleasure of having a baby cardinal fly into Gavin’s hand! Today, I have been watching both the male and female cardinal build their nest in my spirea bush. The stunning red of the male is beyond beautiful each time I see him!
Here he is searching material for the nest …
The nest near completion …
Another pleasure of today was of the robin making a nest in the Crabapple tree. She is hiding a little behind the flowering branch but still you can take a peek! She has been so busy in between the rain drops making her mud nest. How the birds go about making their nests, how protective the male is of the female and then protective of the babies is another joy in watching nature.
I think of Jeremiah 29:11 and realize yet again that the future is full of hope and wonderment for all of us to experience!
Take time to enjoy! Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions,
