A friendly tree-greeter caught my attention just off the trail. An invitation for this morning's tree-hug.
There were many birds keeping us company with their varied sweet songs, insistent calls and woody-drumming.
It's funny how we rarely catch sight of them in the tree-tops.
What I did see was an unusual landing place for an empty half-nutshell ... I think from a different species tree.
Nearby I was excited to see the maple viburnum flowers bursting into exquisite springtime bouquets.
And back home a perfect star-of-Bethlehem flower revealed it's delicate green-heart. Bring you heart to Nature. Open it to the multitude of gifts awaiting you. 💚 Peace
