reflections. . .

on another weekend


I honestly cannot remember such good Spring weather. In Texas, as you know, dear reader, we have either winter or summer, sometimes on the same day! But this year we are having spring.

I am excited about my garden right now, too, as Felix McLemore of Classic Lawn Care has built me another set of raised planters, and everything is coming up so nicely!

And the birds! We feed the birds summer and winter, but they also come in for the berries and pollen on our trees and plants.  Last week we had a tree full of little blue berries, and as we drove in one afternoon we were surprised to see about a hundred cedar waxwings in the tree and on the ground.

Of course, they flew as we got out of the car, but when we came back out a few minutes later, there they were again. They are such beautiful birds. They fly in flocks, and they are birds that are here today and gone tomorrow. Lovely.

In my garden now I can see doves, blue jays, robins, and cardinals, but I know there are many others that are not so easily seen.  I also see butterflies and moths. All-in-all, every blessed thing is beautiful! Thank you, God, for everything!
