of Feathery Little Rascals
The wondrous things of nature,
are too numerous for counting,
Clovered fields and pearl lagoons,
Dark green forests..snow-capped mountains.
A spotted fawn lies in the grass,
As his mother overlooks,
And two otters play their fun and games,
In a nearby gurgling brook.
A furry raccoon waddles by,
A squirrel runs here and there,
Two foxy kits play hide and seek,
Without a worldly care.
But the forest comes alive in color,
When the birds fly through the trees,
And spread their joyful tweets and trills,
On the awaiting summer breeze.
Without the gift of our feathered friends,
What a sad world..... drab and blue,
So take the time to listen up,
Their song is meant for you.
This challenge for March is "For the Birds" featuring the four reference photos above, provided by Birds and Blooms magazine.
If I had to choose a favorite magazine of all time, it is Birds and Blooms. Playboy, Mad, Artists, Omni, Time, Southwest Art, Popular Science, and TV Guide all take a back seat to Birds and Blooms. B&B displays the most exquisite photos, the most helpful information, the most ingenious ideas, and much more in a delightful, friendly, homey format, at the most reasonable rates I have ever seen. Please check it out on the internet www.birdsandblooms.com If you like nature even a little bit...you will be supremely ecstatic. And...they have monthly games and contests like building the neatest birdhouses and feeders, photo contests, caption this photo and lotsa other cool stuff..it's great!
