A Spring Haiku

Spring, are you coming?
The winter wants to leave,
It has my blessing!

I've been on a bit of a creative hiatus lately, so I'll take advantage of my own dry spell to pay attention to someone else's creating! I just realized tonight that spring is one month away! And while I'm very much ready for spring this year, I was extremely thankful to wake up to this scene in my window recently...

And the adorable snowmen in my neighborhood put a huge smile on my face! (I really thought I'd find more than two on my walk today, however!!)

The amazing number of empty bird nests I spotted made up for the lack of neighborhood snowman. I bet I saw close to 100 nests - all types and sizes. They sure looked empty, and it quiet in the air!

Even though it's a winter wonderland now, I know it won't be too much longer before those spring birds are back...I can't wait!! Here's a little house wren that nested at our front door last spring. I wonder if his family will be back this year?

Spring, I'm ready for you! Feel free to remind me of this post when I'm knee deep in weeds!

Till next time,

Snowmen fall from Heaven unassembled.
