First Meadowlark...

I heard his unforgettable song first....
and then I spotted him on the barb wire fence 
as I was shutting the gate on the sheep's pasture.
Joy fills my heart whenever I hear
that first trill.
The meadowlark has come home!
In celebration I stitched an itibit.
One with him singing
and the other with the notes.

  1. Very cute Jody! Have you checked in on the owl tonight? I did and she was sleeping -- not nearly as exciting as last night! Will you be having a little owl square?

  6. I LOVE meadowlarks! I used to hear them a lot when I lived in Colorado, but I don't think we have them here in central Minnesota.
