Slowly approaching her in video above, didn't want to get too close!

It's always a thrill when our yard is in bloom!
This little fella made an appearance, too!
I revived this 2013 photo of cherry blossoms taken in our backyard with some tools in Photoshop to get this!

"Satisfy us each morning with your unfailing love,
so we may sing for joy to the end of our lives.
Give us gladness in proportion to our former misery!
Replace the evil years with good."
After we took the winter cover off our air conditioner unit in May we noticed some wrens building a nest there.
Soon Evan noticed a mama wren sitting on her eggs.
A few weeks after that... the baby wrens arrived!
We heard them peeping loudly, stronger every day, for a few weeks...
And then a few days ago.... they flew the coop!
Below are some images of a brave one making his way out of the nest.
Fortunately, they were able to 'explore' on the grill.
Then they hopped down into the bushes below the a/c unit.
Later, they made their way over to the nearby tree...
Shortly after this we heard them peeping over in the neighbor's yard.
It was soooo quiet after they left. We pray they survived and are doing well now!
Thank you for taking care of the wrens, Lord! :-)
I didn't get any good close-ups of the babies, but here's a collage wren from Wren's Summer Song (2010).
