Rabbit Baby April 28

Perfect for sitting outside with a book, too. I haven’t been doing much writing, but I’ve been reading a lot, working my way through a stack of nonfiction, historical fiction, classic sci-fi, and poetry. Now I want to add a few graphic novels to my shelf. Any suggestions?

    Thank you for this lovely stroll through spring. How calming the little things are. And what a great shot of the eagle and aircraft!

      Thank you! (I have to confess that the eagle photo was pure luck. I didn’t notice the plane while I was shooting, and only saw it after I had downloaded the images…)
