…relishing sweet spring buds – or maybe the first aphids too? :) – Since I live in one of the huge apartment buildings of Amsterdam Bijlmer, we only have a balcony, and the park-like area inbetween the buildings, I consider as my “backyard” . These cute little birds were volunteering to be my model of the day :)
