The Sunday Salon: A Month of Poetry and Birding Begins


Welcome! I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon

What is the Sunday Salon? The Sunday Salon is a place to link up and share what we readers have been doing during the week plus it's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

We are off in East Texas for four days on a little vacation trip with our granddaughter, Bailey, and her family. We plan to hike at a couple of state parks and, of course, view the eclipse. 

It's April, and it's Poetry Month here, so I hope to celebrate by reading poetry. It's also a big month for birding, so I hope to read a couple of birding books this month, too.

I began to list 3 Good Things every day during the pandemic. Now I've established a regular routine of writing down my 3 Good Things. Here are 3 Good Things from last week:

Good Thing #1:

I looked up in our pecan tree this week,
and there was a huge flock of birds.
Silent. Masked.
Cedar Waxwings.

Good Thing #2:

I met these twins at the library this week.
Even their purses matched.

Good Thing #3:

It's a sure sign that 
spring has arrived on the Texas Gulf Coast
when our pecan tree begins to leaf out.
