Signs of Spring

Plum Tree Blossoms, and a sweet pair of House Finches.

You really need to click on these next three pictures to enlarge and properly appreciate the birds. :)

This little pair is waiting for me to leave so they can resume their breakfast. They don't completely distrust me, they are still in the open but would be a lot more comfortable if I just weren't as near as I am. They're perched in a wintering Hydrangea. You'll just have to trust me when I tell you that it's a beautiful plant in the right season.

Dining along a Primrose Path.
They aren't tidy little guests but worth it, still. Don't you think?
