We have another budding nature lover in the family!

I’ve been under the weather for a few weeks, but yesterday I just had to get out of the house, go for a scenic car ride, and then a walk. Trees are greening! April was the wettest month in Connecticut history so we were grabbing some prime time between rainfalls. Can’t say being out there was any good for the allergies, but it sure lifted my spirits.

  1. Birds, ducks and children – including a new Hercules – a bright spot in the day.

    1. Finn is named after the giant Finn McCool (Fionn mac Cumhaill) of Ireland. Since there are no snakes in Ireland I find his interest in a snake a little ironic. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you, Kathy. It’s amazing how getting out in the fresh air is so rejuvenating. Even if the air is full of pollen. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh my goodness… those last two photos are so precious! I love the birds and ducks, too. πŸ™‚ I’m sorry you haven’t been feeling well. I hope you’re feeling better now.

    1. Thank you, Robin. I’m on the mend, and looking forward to seeing the little ones soon. I loved Dima’s photos as well, thoroughly enjoying his take on the lives of his children. πŸ™‚
