Spring is Peeping in my Window ...

Unbelievable how heavy and exhausting a camera can be to hold steady after a two week bout with the flu!! That I even had the slightest interest in trying tells me that I must be on the mend, lol! Caught this from my kitchen window and it was just what I needed to pull me outside to notice all the new backyard birds and budding signs of spring. Ahhh, the healing nurture of nature ...

Answer to a Child's Question

Do you ask what the birds say? The Sparrow, the Dove,
The Linnet and Thrush say, "I love and I love!"
In the winter they're silent—the wind is so strong;
What it says, I don't know, but it sings a loud song.
But green leaves, and blossoms, and sunny warm weather,
And singing, and loving—all come back together.
But the Lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he—
"I love my Love, and my Love loves me!"

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
