Last summer I had the pleasure of meeting lots of cousins that I had never met before, and also had the pleasure of discovering a beautiful wildlife garden at one of these new cousin’s home.
And now I’m visiting this new cousin Judie Kehs Much and her husband David Much at their Myrtle Beach, SC home away from home.
This visit could not have come at a better time because I have to admit I was more than a little weary of the never ending winter we’ve been having in Philadelphia this year. Snow, ice storms, more snow, and endless shoveling have grown a bit tiresome this year.
So last weekend I left this behind:

And saw lots of these:
And I’m so grateful to see these early spring birds because I know that soon enough I’ll be enjoying them near my home as well.
So take heart, even though I had to drive 10 hours south to find it, spring really is just around the corner!!!
