Blackbird sessions




Last Thursday morning I saw my first Red-winged Blackbird of the season. It always makes me happy when they come back in the spring; I just love their song. If you have a minute, close your eyes and listen. I'll wait.


There. Don't you feel better? Oh, and if you listen longer than a  minute you'll a hear the Sora piping up in the background.

And if you just can't get enough of me? Dianne Salerni is interviewing me over at her blog today where I'll be answering some fun questions and showing off you know what.

Finally, the winners of West of Paradise are:

1. Liza
2. LG
3. Liz

Please email me with your addresses so I can send :)
