Thank You! I long for spring already!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I'm always excited to see the first robins.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

A very helpful message to those of us who are under a blanket of snow.

Two days ago, the snow was up to the eyeballs of the birds in the garden sculpture, which is just about three feet tall.

No spring skips its turn."
This is a very helpful message! Thank You!

Wonderful photo of a male American Robin! Clear and sharp photo of the Robin.

The Robins don't leave here in our area. We see them year round (here and there/off and on during the winter months). Love them, especially the juvie Robins, cuz they're so cute and sound sweet.

Happy to see the photo today, as it's been a little while since I've seen and/or heard them.
Welcome to the Agastache and Salvias Forum!

Hummingbirds are beautiful flying jewels in the garden!

I agree with everyone about the picture and the words. Spring is always welcome with her robins here.
Nora this picture of yours also is stunning! It would make a good inspiration photo. Beautiful!

Thank you @TBGDN - Leon. There are some photos I've wanted to submit as a backdrop for the Inspiration Photos, but am not sure how to submit them. Any ideas?

I'm just an amateur photographer, and don't know the requirements for a photo that will have words superimposed over it. Maybe this one would be too dark?

I feel it would be great. But I don't know "how" they pick the photos for inspiration. I've never tried. I think it might be from pictures in the
"landscape" category. They (management) don't say much about it. It would help if they would give some instruction or encouragement. Just my thoughts, and probably not correct. Sad
