My niece with her 3 children, stopped by from Chicago on their way to Florida, for the kids' spring break, and dropped off my mom here. A lot of people say my niece Stephanie, looks more like me than my own daughters do, but you be the judge. People actually call her "Christine" sometimes by mistake.
It must have been a big difference on how the surroundings looked between Chicago and here that she really enjoyed taking pictures of our yard.
It was really strange but in our 4 years of living here, this is the first time I saw bluebirds in the backyard. I usually see a lot of cardinals, mockingbirds and blue jays but never bluebirds, until now. But they are welcome here. In fact, I just refilled all my bird feeders. I hope they eat whatever I put out there.
