Early Summer

May 27, 2013 | nature & awe | 6 comments

I may well crown Memorial Day my favorite of holidays. It’s a revelation that came to me early this morning when the sun first peeked through the french doors and nudged me awake.

Come play, it said, for this is the magic moment when all of summer stretches out before us.

And so we did.

    Memorial Day was Happy for me too. My Mocking Bird is back and welcoming Summer Joyously with many melodies including whip-poor-will. Amazing.

    I can think of nothing better than seeing the things/characters you saw today!!!!

    Birds are such happy creatures. You can’t help but smile (and relax a little?) when watching them.

    Who are those sweet little guys with the white spritzy feathers on top?

    • Cathy

      I think they’re sweet sparrow babies. Aren’t they adorable? (If I’m wrong, someone correct me!)
