Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked...and the wind was in their wings. Zechariah 5: 9

Many of the blossoms are off our flowering crab apple tree now. We've had lots of wind and rain storms in the last few days. What is left of the blossoms have turned a lighter shade of pink...but still it makes a pretty background for the Chipping Sparrow who decided to rest on the branch as I shot the picture. I don't know if this is a male or a female because they have the same identical markings.
