I love this, outside 2 days in a row... perfect.
Rooster fell asleep on us girls so I took the little ladies outside to play around 5:00. It was so nice out. In the 50s, and while the sun was going down, the sky was still clear and blue.
This adorable little pigeon couple was wandering around the yard...
Lydia informs me that she is a "bird expert" and that she knows how to call to them ...
"Awk Awk" she shrieks, oddly enough they came closer and seemed to enjoy her, uh, calls.
Layla plopped down beside me, hands outreached, saying " Bird, Bird, Birdie, Tweet" They got within 5 feet of us... watching us, watching them. It was magical, for the girls and for me.
There were all these wonderful signs of life everywhere... little bugs under blankets of leaves, melting snow revealing green, green grass, birds singing and flying everywhere, buds popping out on all the little trees and plants, and that clean smell that only comes with Spring.
we have been so blessed.
