~~ Joseph Addison, The Spectator, 1712 ~~
At this time of year, I can sit for hours listening to bird song or watching mother birds feed their young. It is so fun to watch them perch on our pergola waiting all a flutter for mother bird to pass them a tasty seed from the feeders. What better way to relax and enjoy the warmth of a spring day?
I still use some of my eggs for decorating although many have been stored away after the Easter/spring decorations have gone. A tray with a few choice items including a yellow bowl filled with eggs brings us in mind of the happy time of mothering for birds in the month of May.
A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
