Last Year’s Burrs – This Year’s Buds

This morning’s light gave us good birding. We welcomed the male R-B Grosbeak for the first time this year. The Cape Mays were around and a female Yellow Warbler in addition to the plentiful Myrtles. Spotted the male Northern Oriole singing to us high in a maple on our way back for breakfast. A nice start to Mother’s Day with my spotter!

This is the peak of the Spring migration. We hope for hummingbirds at our feeder as they move north and maybe, just maybe,  a pair will stay all summer….


Sagrada Familia

After a month in Spain, Portugal and Morocco we felt we were “Churched Out” until we walked into Sagrada Familia. It is a very special place for anyone with eyes and a heart. For a little more info about Gaudí, see my post on the Barcelona of Gaudí.
