Haiku my Heart - Nature's Gifts

tiny visitors -
nature brings a sweet surprise
among garden blooms

A chance sighting
in my backyard.
Iridescent blue birds
I had never seen before.
Tree Swallows, wintering on the Gulf Coast
perhaps waiting for all of the snow to disappear?

to see a photo and hear their lovely spring song

Also for spring...
a burrowing owl..

Does it get any cuter than that?
Well, yes.

baby swans...pastel

Note:  The entire county where I live,
280 square miles,
is a  bird sanctuary.
I love that!

Happy Day!
