If you are in the Northeast, then you’re getting the great pleasure of seeing trees flowering.  I don’t think there’s a better combination of a flower, color, and texture to a landscape than a redbud tree.  There are two types of redbuds; one that produces a green leaf and another that produces a purple/deep red leaf.  I’m not sure how you would tell the difference until the leaves come out, but when we were looking to get one for our yard, the Arbor Day Foundation noted that the green leaf variety is often called a “forest pansy tree”.  That makes zero sense to me, but I guess they know a few things about trees.  You can sign up to support them and you get 10 free trees… four survived and they are planted together.  Currently, it is producing a lovely show:

We also have a new little bird that was in the house… it was flying around and I finally got a hold of it to put it outside.  I placed it on the sliding glass door ledge and it was just hanging out while I was taking pictures.  Then, it popped up and flew back into the house!  Last time we were there, it was still in there, so it may be a permanent fixture… I wonder how Oliver will feel about that?  (These are SOOC)

Wednesday Portrait

Okay, so today’s Wednesday and that makes today Wednesday Portrait day.  However, I forgot to bring my portable hard drive with me so I don’t have access to my library… so, count this is as a FAIL!

And, to help make up for my slacking, here’s an awesome video:
