We have a Carolina Wren who has made a nest in the folds of a broken patio umbrella we have propped up against the wall. I just had to chose this image for my Photo Heart Connection this month because she brings me so much joy.
Each and every day her song is loud and strong.
She works tirelessly retrieving spiders and insects for her babies.
I haven't dared look to see how many little ones she has for fear of disturbing the nest.
To the untrained eye it looks a little precarious tucked into the folds of the umbrella material but I'm sure she knows best as mothers often do.
As she goes about her day I am reminded of the cycle of life.
Life and death . . .
. . . life sustaining life.
Nature is my constant teacher, my mentor, my friend.
To witness just a small part of these everyday miracles makes me feel that magic truly does exist.
What photo did you feel a connection to this past month?
