it is supported by them.”

Hi Jean, what a treat! I definitely love birds. I am watching this amazing video now...wow, thank you so much for sharing it, the birds and scenery are gorgeous and the music is lovely.

Great post, Jean, love the photo and quote as well!

In response to your question on my today's post about the red balls hanging from the trees...it was just a setup of ornaments to make the park look festive for Christmas...by the skating rink.
