~NO VACANCY~

Spring rain is falling...there will be no working in the garden this day... my spirits have not been dampened...for you see.. the Bluebird of Happiness has arrived at my door...to be exact, four pair of Bluebirds now reside in the nesting boxes here at Dog Trot Farm...the "NO VACANCY" sign has been hung... 
"How the countryside thrills with joy when Bluebirds bring us the first word of returning spring. Reflecting heaven from his back and the ground from his breast, he floats between sky and earth like the winged voice of hope."
~WL DAWSON, 1903~

Life couldn't be nicer than with The Bluebird of Happiness setting up housekeeping in one's garden!

How nice that the bluebirds are back. Doubles at that. I am sure they just make you happy.
I envy your spring rain. It would be so nice to have some of that. :)
Have a lovely evening Julie.

Happy belated birthday to Travis. He is such a cutie pie! I wish we had bluebirds in our neck of the woods...although we do have some cute ducklings in the march along with a baby sandhill crane. Janice

Like someone said above I, too, have never seen a bluebird. I think if I see one it would be my favorite!

Oh how lovely! I have seen many birds at our feeders, but only once did I think I saw a bluebird many years ago. I keep watching though. That photo is gorgeous. I'm glad you are well and enjoying Spring in Maine with Travis. Welcome back.
