March may be content to leave us with heavy rains. In fact, it may cause most of us to file this spring start under Z for Zzzzz’s. But don’t sleep right through it. The birds aren’t sleeping. This recent weather has brought a monsoon of feathery activity.
While many of us fly on auto-pilot seeking those first, colorful signs of early spring, try to tread softly. Listen for the calls and songs of the returning birds. The only requirement - grab some weather gear and turn off the distractions, you know which ones fit this category. When there’s nothing left to distract you, watch the best content March has to offer. It’s the worm seeking, berry picking, bug loving birds too often taken for granted in our gardens throughout the year.
Yes, we anxiously await some colorful signs of spring but Sarah Ban Breathnach sums up our waiting with these simple words. “Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.”
On this last day of March, be grateful for those feathery friends – an integral part of a thriving garden. March is only content when the birds return. Before you know it, the Daffodils will be blooming.
