winsome, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

The crabapple tree outside my bedroom window is often weighed down with small, sour, difficult to use fruit that make a mess in the yard most of the non winter times of the year.

It also wears intoxicatingly beautiful white blossoms for nearly three weeks in the spring. Making me think that maybe someday, a child or two or four might want to get married under it.

Sunlight filters through the branches and leaves and dapples the inside walls of the room in the most becoming way.

Then there are the many different birds that come and sit in the branches within just a few feet of my bed.

One of this morning's visitors was was this fluffy, young looking sparrow.

So cute! Sometimes I wish I could have a bird, but I'd never want to keep it cooped up in a cage.
