With steady rain all day, I took advantage of an hour or so of clear weather to sit on my back porch and photograph some of the bird activity. As you will see, our Magnolia is just coming into bloom.
Look all around thee! How the Spring advances!
New life is playing through the gay, green trees
See how in yonder bower the light leaf dances
To the bird’s tread and the quivering breeze. – Ludwig Tieck (1773–1853)
