Misty Dawn, view from my porch
The early morning view from my porch has been misty, foggy, and gorgeous this week. It's so pretty it almost takes my breath away.
And.... the swallows are back!!! These gorgeous little birds are some of my favorites. It feels like friends coming back home. They fly South for the winter and like clockwork, around the end of March they show up again, chirping and swooping and being beautiful and cheerful. They fly out over the lake and snatch bugs out of the air.
They are already choosing their homes and adding to their nests. I suspect that the same birds return to the same houses and eaves of my porch each year, but I'm not sure. (They do all look alike.) :) Just look at those colors!!! From a distance they appear to be black and white, but up close they have green and blue feathers too. I love them and I LOVE SPRING!!!
