early May hailku


spring has finally arrived in Maine
I have put away my snow shovel and brought out my gardening tools
the yard is full of birdsong and the sound of children at play




morning fog
a flash of orange
new leaves


 early May
 trees dress for summer
the oriole's song

  1. I hope your robin is smarter than the silly robin near my house. He kept hitting my windows. I had to cover three windows with post-it notes to deter the bird from banging into the windows. I think he finally got the message.

    1. I have the most problem with purple finches. They can't seem to stay away from the windows, and quite often, hang on the screen while looking in.

    1. Thanks, Tammie. We haven't had such a cold April in years. The leaves are just coming out here. The good thing was that I got to see more birds than usual this year, as they passed through. The orioles have moved on already.

    1. Thanks! Your are sure right about getting more out of spring as we age. I savor every nice day, and fully enjoy both the birds that I see, and every wildflower that blooms.

  7. I love these springy bird-and-buds pictures! And Windy Day is beautifully wispy but orderly! We got "a flash of orange" here, too from our Hooded Orioles visiting the hummingbird feeder. So far the male and female have only come separately...

    1. I just looked up the Hooded Oriole. That one is new to me. My brother in Oklahoma has both Northern and Scott's Oriole. The Scott's isn't supposed to be there. It seems the range of each bird is changing all the time.
