Celebrating Spring

Our beautiful WA Hawthorne Tree was heavy with berries and since it is a tree I was not familiar with until we moved into our home, I kept wondering when the berries would fall.  So with this past Fall, it lost all of it's leaves, then the snow came and it was still vibrant with the beautiful orange berries.  Then one day I was so surprised when several  beautiful Nuthatch spent two days feasting on all the berries.  They were amazingly chubby by the end of the two day feast.  What a celebration that I will look forward to next year.
