spring

They Return!

Yesterday, there were no swallows. This morning as I went out to the car to make my morning coffee run, there were dozens, swooping through the air above the parking lot. For me, that's the moment I feel like it's really spring.  I think they're barn swallows here - some kind, at any rate -- and they are such lovely, elegant little birds, who never seem to stay still.  They make me happy to watch.
