Nature's Blue Prophets

This season of the year, while lacking in external beauty, is precious for the signs of hope that come with each new dawning day. Although another winter storm is predicted to come upon us again tomorrow, nature is holding out little prophecies of spring. Today the prophets came to us in the form of a pair of bluebirds, which are not usually sighted in our area until mid-March.

This week has been wonderful and quite busy for me, so I confess to the reality that the beautiful pictures below were taken by my little sister Rebecca, who actually had time to walk with Mom around the farm to remind the rest of us (or me specifically) that spring will indeed arrive. Yes, what hope!
