  1. Easter magic indeed! So lucky to see something so out of the ordinary. My mom had an albino squirrel living in her oak tree. It was too sweet.

  2. Happy Easter!!

  3. Wow – I’ve never seen an albino finch. Very cool.
    And I love your yellow and bluish window box – my favourite colour combination.
