Spring is here!

Spring is here!  Flowers are blooming.  The weather is warm.  Our bird friends are nesting.

This week we have been planting flowers and watching all of the new babies in our yard.  A pair of tiny chickadees are nesting in a box in our backyard.

Bird, our squirrel friend who lives in our woodpecker house, brought out her four new babies to play.  (To learn more about Bird, check out our February 8 and March 22, 2010, posts.)

Our dove friend has a new nest.  (We posted about Lovey Dovey on March 10, 2010, and again when her babies hatched on April 9, 2010.)

We have some friends who live in Illinois.  We feel sad for them.  The weather is still cold there.  We are lucky to live in Texas where spring comes early!

Below are some links to some great spring activities.  Have fun!
