Our resident Robin had quite a few feathered friends over at our holly tree this morning. We all went outside to see this reunion, it happened last Febrarury as well, and I counted over a hundred of Robins. Within 30 minutes they were gone. There was not one single red berry left on the holly tree. The party was over. It was a magical and even more so since Ella is doing a research project on American Robins.
I can't lie, the days here seem to last forever. The cold and howling wind, and ice just suck. I know we can't have a Spring without a Winter, and I am trying to be hopeful, but I am not having an easy time of it. I am going to ride it out with this new moon.
