Good morning everyone,
When I woke this morning, it was to the unmistakable and beautiful song of the blackbird. Generally I'm no good at identifying birdsong, but I recognise the song of the blackbird, and it is, in my opinion, one of the loveliest and most haunting to be heard in UK.
Its song brought instant peace to my heart and all I wanted to do was to sit and listen and I was able to blot out the background noise of all the traffic and other sounds that that are the backdrop of my location.
How could I not then, dedicate my quotation today to the beauty of nature and birdsong.
Here's a quotation from Alison Croggon, which I suspect must come from one of her books.
"At these times, the things that troubled her seemed far away and unimportant. All that mattered was the hum of the bees and the chirp of birdsong, the way the sun gleamed on the edge of a blue wildflower, the distant bleat and clink of grazing goats."
All or any of those things mentioned are the beauty of summer. I think we have to try extra hard at this time to make sure we hear and see them all.
Please have a good week everyone.
