One of the first trees to flower here is forsythia. I took this photo last week.
A photo from today. Even the magpie posed for me on the tree.
This tree is opposite my window where I blog. Some time over the past couple of months a collection of twigs has appeared in the branches and I noticed a magpie visiting now and again, who is probably responsible for the construction: it is probably a magpie nest, according to what I found in Internet. Now I am hoping that little magpies will be appearing some time in the future – more food for the camera 🙂
