The blessings of birds are many from their importance to ecosystems to the joys they bring with their songs. Here is another installment of photographs to help cheer your day. As always I am grateful to Kathy Marche, the photographer and the soul with a big heart. Thanks again, Kathy.
If you ever visit the province of Newfoundland & Labrador you may want to take a walk on the many trails through the woods – you’ll be glad you did!
A friend and nature enthusiast has graciously agreed to allow me to use her photographs on my blog. Kathy Marche lives on the West coast of the island of Newfoundland. An avid bird watcher, she has captured wonderful images of our feathered friends. With spring just around the corner it is nice to anticipate the return of migratory birds. Here are a few of Kathy’s photographs taken in various locales near her home.
My sincere thanks to Kathy for allowing me to use her photographs. There are many more to come. Kathy treks the nature trails as well as the highways and byways and takes beautiful photos of nature and winged creatures of every kind. I hope you have enjoyed this brief interlude and break from winter. It is a cold day in February, but looking at these photos helps me remember spring will soon be here… thank goodness!
Deep within your green folds you grow
Developing, stretching toward the sun that warms you
Slowly you peek out at the August sky
Not quite ready yet to make your debut
Sneaking furtive glances at the sun
For whom you are named
And like the earth itself you follow the sun
Reaching on green stalk toward the warmth
Of your namesake in the sky
Even before you burst forth in all your glory
we wait in joyful hope
Anticipating your beauty
Your wide girth
And brown centre
That provides a subtle base
To your golden petals
