My wee toddler (almost three!) has a new saying. When he sees a bird he says, “There’s a bird. She’s wishing – she’s wishing on the sky.”
I think he may have gotten this idea from the enchanting picture book he so loves, Starlight Sailor, which plays off of the old poem, “Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight…”
Well, I think the birds must have something going on with that wishing on the sky.
I wish I may, I wish I might, see a sign of spring tonight.
Ah! I see catkins emerging in the late afternoon light.
On behalf of all northern gardeners, Thank You, little birds. We are thrilled you thought of us. Best wishes to you for a wonderful spring!
