I saw my first Robin yesterday. It was early morning, then in the afternoon I saw another one. Two Robins. One at our place and one down at our other place. Spring is here!
Many of the other birds have started coming back, some I just don’t know the name of, but recognize them as Spring birds. The last to arrive will be the Swallows. Once the Swallows appear it will be full on Spring, without a hint of winter.
Every morning we wake up to a smattering of Canada Geese…stopping by of an evening to rest and feed upon the corn fields.
The Sandhill Cranes leave the upper cornfields late morning heading North. For some reason the two bird species do not share the same area of the farm. Also the geese leave early, early in the morning and the cranes about an hour after sunrise.
I love to stand and watch them. Boomer has learned to sit quietly by my side so I can take photos, his ears cocked, watching with interest. Still enough I can hear the beating of my heart.
After the birds fly away Boomer and walk back home. Through the cows and the calves.
Sometimes it’s just these still moments that blaze themselves upon our hearts and brain, allowing us to recall them in complete detail for the rest of our lives. Small little moments of peace and contentment.
From my world to your heart,
