..God gave him another heart: and all those signs came to pass that day...I Samuel 10: 9

Over night we had snow
And I thought...OH NO!
Til' I saw the black crow...
In the Cottonwood Tree.
The crow does his part
If we have eyes to see...
As he shows us a heart
On the side of the tree...
Poetry by me AJP

Happy Valentine's Day to my friends at JPG...

I hope you see the heart in the tree which I had never noticed before until after I shot this picture.. I was delighted to spot this on Valentine's Day.

    Yes, the branches add a very nice element to this comp. Maybe, the crow is missing his mate. Happy Valentines to all, Andrea!

    That heart was just meant to be there for you, I'm sure! The tree and crow stand out very beautifully against the blue sky, and he is a huge bird! Happy Valentine's Day, Andrea!
