Hardly trivial. Well defined details show you appreciate what others take for granted. Simple things to many. But you found the beauty in them. And passed that on to us. We don't have any cardinals around here. Perhaps you might catch one with your camera and share that with us too? Thanks for sharing your observations. :)


I love reading your blog. It takes me to the mountains as I dream of the being in the Blue Ridge!


Oh, there's nothing trivial about birds singing, green shoots showing, or peepers piping! The word picture you painted here is a lovely one and as essential to my well-being as food and water. Thank you.


Lovely. I am envious about your garden. I planned to plant in March but illness said "no, stay in bed" and my garden still lies fallow. Maybe this weekend.
