Today I walked outside to a beautiful sight! My tulips are sprouting! They look beautiful and healthy and vibrant against the muddy brown soil. I'm so excited to see something green in those flower beds. It won't be too long before they're more than just an inch or two tall, starting to open and even flowering. Ahhh, it's nice knowing that the winter will be ending soon.
We put up a bird feeder on the side of our house this week too. We hung it outside the kitchen window in our neighbor's tree. When I got back from the gym today, there were several black birds and a few finches in the tree. I saw a red headed finch and a yellow bellied finch. There was also a Pine Siskin Finch (had to look that one up, Mom). I'd never seen one of those before! It was beautiful! I'd love to put up a real bird feeder just for Finches. They're such pretty birds.
Another sign of spring? Max stands by the front door asking to go outside. And when we do, he gets muddy.
