Photo Shoot - Trees

Cari at Clan Donaldson is gathering photos and this week's theme is trees. I'm totally cheating because this is an old photograph, but one that I love.


John and I have a late winter/early spring tradition of combing the neighborhood looking for birds' nests. We started this two or three years ago, and he still talks about it all. the. time. While the trees are still bare, the nests are easy to spot and seem to be everywhere.

A special memory I'll always share with a special five-year-old.

We love doing that, too! I like thinking of all those nests that will be hidden before I know it.

Thanks for linking up. Hope to see you next week.

I love searching for birds nests too, especially when you see the little birdies in it!

Jessica Thornton said...

Yes, what Natalie said. And we do it with vengeance in our hearts. What a lovely tree! I love the fat branches, no spindly twigs there.

Dwija, I grew up in SE Michigan. How well I remember the long winters.
