creature comfort

Is it my imagination or does it seem like all creatures great and small love this time of year, not just people? In the morning, it's as if the squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks are having a carnival. On the gate post, there's a tiny bird I've never seen and he lingers long enough for both of us to have a good look at each other. The dog is eager to walk and walk and walk. Today I spotted the turtle sunning on her creek rock for the first time in months. This must be the happiness before hibernation. When heaven and nature sing.
