Bird and Blossoms

Mockingbird among the blossoms on the tree in my backyard ~ April 2010.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. 
~Anne Bradstreet

Sometimes I think one of the best parts of Spring is the "looking forward to it" part :)

Oh, it's definitely the "looking forward" part for me... we're just a couple of months away from this!!

Gorgeous photo and really nice quote. I agree that the looking forward to it part is good! Then when it comes, we're so excited!

How true is this statement.. A lot of people should be reading this one...We live in Iowa where the winter is so cold and sometimes just not nice...IT's part of life if you live here. Spring is something to look forward to but so is winter if you live in Iowa. Enjoy the seasons...all 4 of them.

It's tough sometimes to look forward (especially when it's snow-covered, icy roads, and wind chills in the negatives), but with posts like this to remind us, the wait is a little easier :)

He looks cool as a cucumber...and quiet!...And I don't know if I totally agree with the quote. I'd just as soon NOT have bad health just to appreciate when it's good...THANK YOU! :-)

When it's -30 in central MN like it was this morning, spring can't get here soon enough. Actually just hoping for a short Jan. thaw.

I love the detail and lighting on the bird and the flowers! The blue sky adds a really nice color to the photo too. Awesome job!

Well, with the deep freeze here I get the feeling spring is still a few corners away. But we can stilllook back at photographs like this and marvel at what nature brings. It won't be long now...(smile). ATB!

This photograph is absolutely gorgeous, Kerri! This is a bird I have not photographed yet... It's on my life list though :-)

That quote really spoke to me.I have been longing for spring,but must first endure the winter.In the same way I long to be 'from the heart' happy again,but I must first pass through the period of grieving which God has allowed.Gorgeous picture of the mocking bird.

The mockingbird is calling for spring - for you perhaps - but not for me! What a blue sky!
