my view, may

Well, my wish for it to warm up came true, but only barely. We're finally enjoying occasionally sunny weather in the 50s and 60s (and today maybe even 70!), and the leaves have popped.

Yesterday, Raeann and I traipsed through the dewy grass to take these photos of the crabapple trees. Their cheerful springtime scent was worth the wet socks. A day later, they're twice as floriferous (I love that word!).

My little corner is getting dimmer by the day, because the tree started to leaf out. I'm hoping it will continue to be a haven for birds, especially our hermit thrush, Flash (an ironic name for a bird who refuses to pose for photos).

Happy May!

PS: See our office bird count in the sidebar on the right. Each species is linked, so you can see photos and read more about them.
