This morning I was looking out my window and smiling because of the sunshine. I wasn't fooled into thinking it was warm...1de. was the temperature..Brrrr..But it was nice to see light and blue sky! Then I noticed the tree was loaded with these little creatures. Robins!! Many Robins! Growing up a Robin was suppose to be the first sign of Spring. Jack kindly informed me that many species of birds do winter over and don't fly south. Yes, I know that, but can't a frozen girl dream of warmer days? Of singing birds? When I went outside to take these pics I realized what was going on.
This is the reason why this tree outside my diningroom window was covered with birds..the tastey crabapples that were still left from this summer. How clever of Mother Nature to leave a snack for them on these very cold and snowy days of winter.
Well, enjoy yourselves little birds..eat all those freeze dried crabapples..and maybe next time I find a whole flock of Robins it will be spring!!! Please!! P.S...If I should leave my car in the driveway next to that tree, please watch where you leave the fruit when you're done..if you get my drift.
