We had many companions on our journey on this dreary day: ducks, seagulls, pigeons, hardcore joggers, another mama with a sleeping stroller babe, some ladies with umbrellas, strange, hovering insects that looked like winter mosquitoes (!?!) and my favorites (other than the boys) lovely birds singing happily away.
Rain, heck they love the stuff. It was all happy birdsong out on the marsh by the lake today. And something in their songs lifted my heart out of the marshy lowlands and into a rejuvenated spirit of it's good to be alive. The cold does that to me. It's something about the promise of warmth later that makes me enjoy the chill.
And then there is the beauty of nature. The colours of spring emerging out of the west coast winter gray.
Yellows and vibrant peachy pinks are in this spring, nature has a jump on the fashion trends. And as for the birds I am making them a playlist. Please leave a comment with your favorite bird song if one comes to mind and I'll share the playlist when I finish it off. Have a great weekend.
