If you’re open to it, each day is full of surprises and moments of joy. Today, for example, on a bitterly cold winter’s morning, we suddenly noticed a flock of birds flitting back and forth among the trees.
Curious, we took out the binoculars to get a closer look.
Robins, a bird we normally identify with the return of spring, were happily flying about the snow-laden trees.
A surprise that brought a smile, as well as a shake of the head. Did they miss the memo about flying south for the winter?
Over the weekend, I had the joy and pleasure of being near Lake Ontario. I did a lot of walking, and took photos galore. I’ll share some of my more memorable ones in the weeks to come. For now, here are two that speak to me of spring and new beginnings.
