OK, please indulge me . . .
When I lived in the country there were bluebirds, always and everywhere.
I loved that first sign of spring when one might come sit on my studio window sill
to reassure me that yes, it's really coming!
How beautiful is it that something so simple can bring a smile and hope?
I have missed my bluebirds.
Living in the suburbs they don't like such close quarters.
Yes, I've seen them on walks to the park, or drives in the country, but
in the 10 years we have lived here never in our backyard.
Until . . . . . Yesterday!
(Now...some of you might "get" this !)
Husband and I were mid sentence talking about something, I
don't even remember what, when over his shoulder, thru the window I saw
Without missing a beat, I said, whilst pointing . . . BLUEBIRD!
I ran off to grab the camera and snapped 74 photos in a few minutes!
(What were we talking about? Not a clue! We never got back to it!)
Bluebirds are definitely more important!
Even thru the screen these images make me smile as I hope they will you!
A bluebird in the suburbs.
Movin' on up?
Or loss of habitat?
But for today I'll just smile!
May you always have a bluebird on your shoulder,
