Spring has finally really sprung here in Savannah. We have gorgeous azaleas in our front garden, and a mommy duck has been bringing her eight ducklings to eat under our bird feeders. The birds have discovered our bird-friendly back yard with its two seed feeders, suet block, and seed bell. The only feeder that hasn't seen any action yet is the hummingbird feeder. Or, more precisely, I haven't seen any hummingbirds at it yet. That doesn't mean they haven't found it! Down at our pond, the parent turtles have been bringing the baby turtles out on shore to sun themselves. If you get anywhere near them they all immediately sploosh back down into the pond. They are really cute!
I love the re-birth of the trees and flowers, and the baby animals we've seen. It's yet another reminder of God's power to bring life back to things that are dead and brown. Even though the pollen which precipitates the gorgeous flowers and tree leaves is my mortal enemy, I still appreciate what it accomplishes. Oh, and does anyone besides me think our Sago Palm is getting TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL?
