As I go forward into May I take my poetry reading.
Perhaps I shall lay under the Maple tree
and write odes to the Orioles!
Thank you for the showers.
I am excited.
A Tree Sparrow came to my Dogwood.
Editor's note....Lisa let me know that my cute little visitor is the Lincoln's Sparrow not a Tree Sparrow! Thank you Lisa!
There is a wind advisory until this evening.
The female Northern Cardinal came to share breakfast with me.
We often eat together.
This morning her mate came for seed giving.
These two are the sweetest pair.
We finished our breakfast together.
When I gathered up my tray I heard another familiar call.
The male Baltimore Oriole had come to the Ash tree.
I am filled with joy!
A pair of Dragonflies patrolled the pond.
Time to get my field guides out.
A Spring Azure flittered and flew about only to land
for a second before fluttering off again.
"Hello, welcome back Butterflies and Dragonflies.
I have missed you!"
They were so tiny.
We were down on the grass watching them awaken to life.
Our legacy is our respect for life.
All of life.
Each month there are at least 40 different species of birds in the back yard.
The Juncos have gone North. I am waiting on the Orioles and the Grosbeaks.
I hope they remember me!
