Two hundred yards from the bur oak stands this huge light barked tree.
It's just beautiful.
I think it is a sycamore.
Look how the light reflects off of its creamy skin.
It's even more impressive in real life...it glowed.
Tonight I will be attending a really special event.
Our Stephanie is preforming tonight with Fernando Ortega at a local church.
I love hearing Stephanie play the piano and sing. Her voice is very beautiful...a gift from God.
I haven't heard Fernando sing yet, but I hear wonderful things about him.
If you would like to attend, there may be tickets still available.
I hear the robins are back in our area! I haven't seen one yet this year but Anita has and she left a
great comment on my facebook that I wanted to share here....
she just cracks me up.
Byron and I saw about 2 dozen robins in a tree!
I tried to hug them but they flew away in a panic.
I am on the lookout and I am determined to find a robin today.
TO THE FIRST ROBIN
by: Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888)
WELCOME, welcome, little stranger,
Fear no harm, and fear no danger;
We are glad to see you here,
For you sing "Sweet Spring is near."
Now the white snow melts away;
Now the flowers blossom gay:
Come dear bird and build your nest,
For we love our robin best.
"For we love our robin best."
Encourage one another,
