you arrived at the tail end of a snow storm...

this year on the anniversary of your birth
the forsythia twirls in its yellow skirts.
happy birthday, darling girl.
may your nest be ever feathered with joy.

Handsome bird house. Do like its hooped skirt. I once had a glorious forsythia in Canberra, which gets cold for Australia.

Happy birthday from me, Kitty-cat.

What a beautiful acknowledgment on your daughter's birthday. Happy "birth" day to you, mom. The best of both seasons! Did you go by sleigh to the hospital or was it a home birth?

My 10 year old forsythia died last year in the drought. I sorely miss it and enjoyed seeing yours the more.
