The Sound of Spring!

It happened today! I have been waiting for it for days, knew it could happen anytime. I was chatting with the hubby, all of a sudden I put up my hand to shush him, we listened and distinctly heard ~ the song of the Robin! We sprinted outside and to the East of us was a tree full of robins. They were having a merry time and from what I could pick up, they had had a very lovely, but tiring journey to Montana and asked if they could eat the berries off my Privet Hedge. I of course, said yes.  :)
 Always, Kit

You are so generous! I saw a couple of robins recently, and was thrilled. They mostly sing to me in the mornings of God's constancy, and I don't know just what they get from my yard. That is a lovely painting.

Wonderful post! No robins here but w/ my binoculars I believe I saw the first oystercatchers arrive today! I was, like you , thrilled.

Yay! We've jumped right into summer with temps already around 90. The a/c is running all the time. Have a great weekend. Tammy

What a joyful sound to hear the robins the first time in the spring. Here in Montana and Wyoming it's an especially wonderful sound. Glad you had time to appreciate them. Diane
