It's Spring . . .

Finally! A day without rain! So it's off to the garden center to buy flowering red currant bushes and to take a few photos as we walk the grounds. I loved the curve of this African daisy and how it seemed to be looking forward to something.

In the meantime, our yard is filled with golden- and white-crowned sparrows, American goldfinches, spotted towhees, mourning doves, chestnut-backed chickadees, red-breasted nuthatches, Oregon juncos, Steller jays, and crows. Three bald eagles flew overhead the other day and ospreys are setting up housekeeping.
