A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

To the right is a photo of the Japanese Maple Tree that graces our front yard, in front of the dining room windows. The colors are more vivid than in any of the previous five Springs we've enjoyed in this house. I wonder why that is? Could it be the long, cold Winter we had? The wet, wet March, when the leaves were forming? Who knows? Who cares!

And, the glorious red leaves of the maple are accented by the yellows, purples, and pinks of the iris that grow at the base of this tree (photo to the left). Aren't they just lovely? I can see this show from my office window...who could ask for anything more?

Well, how about a robin on a nest? Yep, if you look closely at that photo of the Maple above, you might see our Momma Robin nestled into her new home, keeping (we assume) some eggs warm and toasty. Here (right) is a close-up that shows the scene a little better. If there was ever any doubt about the season, this should put all questions to rest!
