    Your comment really caught my attention!!
    May your dream come true... I am waiting for the buyer's bank's green light... it should come during next week.
    It is really annoying to have to wait so long and all of sudden things will speed up.
    great spring post, I see the birds are still around your feeder too, I wish I had more Goldfinches, but I was so lucky to see the Hawfinch and to be able to take those pics.

    Enjoy your evening, warm hugs and hopefully we might meet some day :)

    1. It is also so much nicer than walking on the tar roads though I always have to put some tar into my walk to get to places. Keep well Diane

  5. I am envious of the pictures of the Barn Swallows. It's still about three weeks away until ours will return. Today was an April Fool's Day joke one day late. We had about 2 cm of snow!
