That's the caption on a Tshirt I was given a few years ago, and Tshirt and caption both fit. Here I was so focused on this robin that I didn't notice the buds of the Ribes sanguineum (Red-flowering Currant) until I got the shot up on my screen. Of course I didn't get the blossoms in focus, so I had to rehike my route a few days later to confirm that the shrub was actually blooming and determine what sort of shrub it was. This was mid-February, so very early for Spring here. But then the shrub isn't native to Norway. It's from the Pacific Northwest (Northern California along the coast up to Washington state), where winter is shorter.

Lol, it is amazing how we all fall to being concentrating on one subject and overlook another. It is usually a treat to see the other for the first time on the screen though. TFS Doc!
