Jasmin & Ruby

I'm leaving for vacation on Monday, but I wanted to show you the gorgeous flowers blooming out my front door this morning! I live in Florida and today is 72 degress. Flowers are blooming, birds are singing. It feels like the middle of spring. We had a storm this morning. You can see the raindrops still on the blooms. It's confederate jasmin and smells heavenly. It normally has tons of bumblebees on it. Up at the top completely covered is the cutest litte bird's nest. We climb up there on a ladder sometimes to see the tiny eggs. Speaking of birds, I had to show you Ruby, the newest addition to our family. She's my sugar's little bird (one of her birthday presents) and she loves it soo much already. What a precious bird! She sings when you turn on music and sits so still she looks stuffed the rest of the time. She's been hand raised and sits on your finger without any hesitation. Great pet for children.
I'll blog about my trip when I get back. I'll wait to share where we're going. Want to take a guess? Leave your guess and I'll do a give-away with a little goody from my trip. You don't have to be right to win. I'll be back around March 5th. See you then! hint: (It's in Europe.)
