Yes, Green is everywhere. The trees, bushes, and plethora of plants show they are survivors—despite the harsh Wisconsin winters. "Welcome, welcome, welcome" is all I have to say. "I'm glad to see you made it!"
On my porch hangs a luscious Fuschia plant. It attracts the first hummingbird of the season. Seeing it changes the rhythm of my heartbeat for an instant.
I am been blessed with good fortune this past week as a rainbow of colorful finches line the circumference of the feeder...purples and golds. A pair of black and orange Baltimore Orioles, a bright blue Indigo Bunting and black and white Rose-breasted Grosbeak color the landscape. Mourning Doves, Downy Woodpeckers, White-breasted Nuthatches, Northern Cardinals, Blue Jays, Red-winged Blackbirds, Northern Flickers, and untold species of sparrows stop by to say "Hello" and "I'm back."
