Spring has come to Pennsylvania

"See!  The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.  Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land."  [Song of Solomon 2:11-12 NIV]

Daffodils in our backyard

Just beautiful!

And yes, we even have the cooing of doves.  With the placement of the birdfeeder out the kitchen window, we've seen more birds than ever visiting our yard.  With the help of birdfinder websites, the kids have enjoyed learning the types that are migrating through our area.  Last weekend, we even had a pair of doves hanging out for a few days.  I can see why, with all the flowers in bloom, I want to hang out in our yard more too! 


  1. Hi! I got a plant from a friend last year and it never bloomed, but this year it has purple flowers! It is just like the one in your picture above (the caption underneath says "Just Beautiful")! What is this plant??? Thanks so much!

    1. Sorry. I didn't mean to be vague. It is a crocus. If you're in PA, maybe it didn't bloom last year because of the horrible winter we had. Glad you have flowers now. :)
