Our Summer Home
I mentioned before that we have heron colonies in our area. It is wonderful to watch over the weeks to see the comings and goings, the progress, and new life transform before our eyes. We actually have 3 full trees of nests in about a two mile radius. Two trees have about eight nests, and the third tree which is in the one haiga has many more nests, but it is unknown how many are old and abandoned and how many are inhabited now. The photos are not the best due to the distance but they at least show the activity.
I had fun writing the haiga because in understanding the significance of heron in different cultures, they represent: prosperity, patience, strength, going with the flow, staying on our unique paths, etc. These are sentiments about our lives which we all are working to know in our beings…and integrate into our lives…it was fun to integrate them into the story of the herons.
I hope you enjoy. I also hope you see the slide show…if it doesn’t work for you for some reason, please see the photos individually below. Have a wonderful day.
