So he can
My favorite time of year! I love your photo imagery as well as your verbal.
So beautiful colors. I loved.
Nice shot nestled among the crab-apples! I’ll take that as a hopeful sign of Spring while Winter gets in its last licks!
Congrats on seeing a robin, I always get excited to see the first one of the year 🙂 I hope spring comes soon!
Looking ahead to the future while still living in, and enjoying the present – very inspiring.
Beautiful capture!! I do hope spring is on the way!
That fat breast suggests the abundance of spring. I always feel joy at the sighting of a robin. We seem to have so few in my mountains. Robins abounded during my childhood in upstate New York.
Reminds me to open my eyes!
Where’s Batman ??? :))
Wonderful poem to go with your photo
I’ve forgotten where you’re located. We don’t see these guys quite this early in MN. This is an uplifting reminder that we will soon 🙂
beautiful. And I actually saw robins in the park this year.
Yay! ❤ 🙂
You must hide in trees…ha ha.
