Nature Song

Hello dear friends and readers, I hope you are realising that nature is the best tonic for social isolation. The past 7 weeks has surely tested us all with the global changes and restrictions to family gatherings, however, one thing is a song to my heart, and that is the beauty in nature.

Bird calls in the morning in Mapleton are a constant. You hear the chorus of tweets, chirps, screeches and squawks. A new day. A new vibrancy. A new song.

On my walk, half asleep at 6am, I captured these photos and wanted to share them with you to add colour and beauty to your day.

Nature’s song is always well tuned, balanced and beautiful.

Whether it’s the touch of a paperbark tree or the fragrance of a flower, the green in foliage or the messiness of the bush, it’s there for us to appreciate. Share with me your encounter with nature this week. I would love to hear what you did. Stay well.

Lovely photos. Yes, bird song is refereshing to hear first thing in the morning. But at the moment our bird chorus are crows and they don’t carry a nice smooth song! My ginger is flowering which is a pretty yellow sight.

    Crows are so noisy a repetitive jarring tone. Have you got some head phones?

      No. I don’t worry about it. They only carry on for 20 minutes then they go elsewhere.

I love the speckles on the hydrangeas.

I’ve been enjoying the beach at dusk. So replenishing. X

    I have been watching the news on the state of France. Hope you and your family are coping. Wish I could sit and chat near one of those old fountains. Best wishes and love, Marg.
