dark, darker, darkest
those moments just before dawn
wren sings from the fence

  10. We have a line of evergreens beside our house, and birds love them. We are serenaded quite often in the dark mornings. I love your project - I tried doing this at the beginning of the school, thinking I could capture our days. I am sure you will be much more successful than I was!!!
