little bits of sunshine
The goldfinches are back with their canary yellow plumage…
A sure sign that summer is finally drawing near.
There are a whole lot of them hanging around the old neighborhood. They make quite a cheerful racket.
The grosbeaks seem to like the neighbor’s weeping willow.
What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
― Joseph Addison
