Roses and Catbirds?

My roses are blooming! YAY!

Before and after  …

And as for the catbird … well, I was taking a walk down by the intra-coastal waterway the other day when I saw this little guy hopping about through the underbrush from shrub to shrub. I believe they only migrate down to my area during the winter-time so he should be heading back home soon. (They’re called catbirds because they can mimic the meows of a kitty!)
