~ My Special Day ~

The trees are alive with happy birds singing their
little hearts out....for they know that today is the

First Day of Spring ♫♫

I'm hoping Robins will come again to my back porch 
to lay a new nest of beautiful blue eggs like 
last year!

I saw my first Robin on Tuesday and now on Friday they
seem to be everywhere....yeah!

Have you spied your first Robin yet?


Not only does Spring effect the birds, it also effects 
young men with hot cars....

Such is the case with my son Sam, who could hardly wait to drive his
 Shelby GT 500.

He ended up cruising down to 'Goose Island Park', 
which is a marshland park.  He got some great pictures...

This tree has such an eerie look!

Because a marsh area is so wet, you'll see lots of 
exposed roots.

This one looks like an octopus!

All along the riverbank these poor trees are uprooted.

The very large Pileated Woodpeckers are attracted to these 
trees....check out the large holes they make!

Woodpeckers are after the bugs under the bark
of trees.

I'm sure you've all heard the old saying;

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck,
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

These next pictures will show you who really
does chuck wood....

This intense woodchucking is done by BEAVERS!

Like the Woodpeckers, Beavers also love these old trees!

They one by one take down these trees and use them
to build their Beaver Lodges out on the river.

 They certainly must have powerful jaws!

Here's a pile of the wood chips they leave behind.

I wish Sam could have caught a Beaver in action!

These pictures just amaze me!

I worked like crazy all week getting
the Little Sparrow Pinkeep kits shipped out....they all shipped
on March 18th & 19th.

I wanted to make sure they were out before March 20th, 
because today is my birthday and I'm taking the
weekend off...yeah!

Sam's going to take me for a ride in his Shelby....Caribou Coffee House
sounds like a great destination!

I love them that love me;
and those that seek me early shall find me.
