  4. Can't get over the colour of the crab apple blossoms - exquisite. And the soft grey of that sweet house finch with the blast of pinky-purple is just beautiful.

  5. Well you can kiss Winter goodbye! I wouldn't get anything done in the house if that was my view. I think I can hear that cute bird singing a Spring song. Your photography is just breathtaking Betsy.
