peonys

The first evening in spring when I hear the 'peepers', I'm instantly comforted. We can't wait for the frogs to immerge from their winters nap in our little pond, & everyday we do a head count to see how many stayed/or moved in. I make a point of closing my eyes & relishing the orchestra of bird song each sunrise & evening. And in the summer I watch in awe as hummingbirds, butterflies & bees swarm the bee-balm, the delphinium, & monks hood. It brings me peace & serenity knowing these creatures have shelter, water, & food.

I, too, await the peepers every spring. Sometimes we'll hear them quite early during an extended warm spell. Their sound helps us get through the rest of the cold weather, knowing spring and warmth are just around the corner. "If winter comes, can spring be far behind?"
