How I Know

Just like clockwork the seasons come and go no matter the temperatures or the color of the sky. How I know spring is around the corner are trees ready to burst with blooms

and azaleas opening to color my world.

A favorite harbinger of spring is the robin. I don’t know where it has been or where it is going, but for now it is here skipping in the grass.

Almost every day a robin or two or three visit our fountain.

Sometimes it’s for a sip of water but more often than not it’s for a bath that provides some entertaining moments.

There’s a whole lot of shimmying and shaking going on as the robin dances around in the water.

All done, the robin sits calmly letting water droplets fall around it and is totally indifferent to its human observer! Its antics give meaning to being as free as a bird!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
