You know it's Spring when....

A Sparrow takes a bath
and glares at you for watching!

The first Rose blooms

Gleditsia loves the morning sun

A Cockatoo has slept in a pine tree!

The Smokebush flares up

Azalea too

You find a Wren's nest

Mr and Mrs Wren

Lilac buds pop open
and fill the air with perfume

An inquisitive Kingfisher drops by

It's a rare visit;
we had to be quick with the camera

The pretty Crabapple

The Satin Bowerbird comes by
looking for colour for the nest.
Look at that blue, beady eye!

She's fascinated by those yellow balls!

On tippy-toes

Darn, I'll fly up!

♪♪ "It might as well be Spring!" ♪♪

Another five weeks of
splendour in the grass, garden, trees and sky!

Oh Thank you... I love seeing this...

I'll trade you some of my gray, cool, windy days of ever-deepening fall, anytime for your glorious Spring...

Loved the photos of the glaring Sparrow, the inquisitive Bowerbird and all the beauties of Spring.

Thanks for the reminder of what I have to look forward to...FIVE MONTHS FROM NOW! :)

Such beautiful photos. We're going into fall here and all the leaves are turning bright colors. I think spring is a favorite time for me. Everything blooming out, coming alive again. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Aww...everything is SO beautiful! Spring is a wonderful season. I'd love to have cockatoos in the back yard!

Wanda...that glaring Sparrow shot is great; my husband lies on the floor waiting for the perfect shot!

Mason...I also love Spring because I can throw open windows for the breezes and perfumes!

Betsy...the Cockatoos are a joy; very funny birds with their antics!

You captured the beauty and wonder in the spring garden perfectly.

Paul...thank you; it's another exquisite morning here!

Nancy said...

These pics made my day. The little sparrow glaring after its bath, LOL!

Alaine, your bird shots are amazing. The blue of her eyes and the yellow of the lemons are a spectacular contrast!
