Panier of Plenty

Hirondelles gathering

As the temperature plummets and the first rain in ‘I can’t remember how long’ falls, the eves of the houses in our street are alive with tiny hirondelles, sheltering. Preparing for their annual migration to Africa, they are regrouping and collecting the young from the many nests here, ready to fly to warmer climes…

Regarde!

Regarde!
