Here are my responses:

I am the shortest and oldest kid in my birth family.

I have 3 siblings that I know about - 2 brothers (twins) and one sister.

I am looking forward to new baby Carolina wrens this Spring!

This is our old mailbox. It is now on our back patio. The wrens have built a nest in it. 
I am very excited!

I also look forward to more time photographing our backyard visitors.

The first sign of Spring this year was pretty much a tie between 80+ degree weather and wildflowers.

  1. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, nice answers. Great photos of the birds. Have a nice weekend! XO

    1. Thanks, Ellen. I love sitting out there with the birds and am trying to get back in the habit of doing so. I am really looking forward to seeing our new wren babies when the time comes. :)

      Have a blessed weekend!

  2. Beautiful photos! Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Yvonne. :) You have a blessed weekend, too!

  3. Thanks for sharing those wonderful photos Suzanne, love looking at old photos for our fashion choices and hair styles. The mail box repurposed as a birds nest is fabulous.
    Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks, Pamela. Some of those old fashions, especially the icky-ester ones, make me cringe. haha

      I had done some research on wrens when they nested in our patio lamp last year. Something suggested they would nest in the mailbox, so when we replaced it with a bigger one, we brought the little one to the patio right away. I was very surprised that the took to it so soon, but very glad they did.

      Have a blessed night. :)
