{52 snapshots of life} #spring

spring is a season of new beginnings and new life. it can be seen all around us. from the new pop of color in the garden ...

to the unseen miracle of life. what looks like just a mound of twigs is actually an intricately built mockingbird nest in my orange tree. i've been watching mr & mrs mockingbird come and go for several days now, bringing all sorts of building materials in their beaks. the other day when they were both away, i peeked into the tree and found their nest! they are still in the process of building it so there aren't any eggs yet, but i'm sure it's only a matter of days.

mr mockingbird can be heard at all hours of the day, singing his songs of spring.

{52 snapshots of life} is a weekly themed photo challenge hosted by
the lazy pitbull.

until we meet again my friends-


  1. We love this time of year when all the flowers are you bloom

  2. Looks like Snap Dragons. Mom loves those from when she was a little girl.

  3. I also love this time of year, in fact it's my favorite. Snapdragons are lovely in those sweet colors and I see Bailey in the background enjoying it all. Can't wait for the new arrivals in your orange tree.

  4. Very poetic and creative prose. Impressive, love to see Bailey keeping an eye on the cycle of life in her own little bit of turf.also,nice pics.How wonderful that you are documenting this wonderful event.

  5. What a great view you have of the nest! that will continue to make for a very fun spring.You look just so very comfortable in the colorful garden.
