The flight of swallows

Swallow in carved wood covered with old score

As swallows fly, our two houses are not very far apart and we are very close in our minds’ décor, what to my surprise when I found her pretty swallow !

First, I say that one of my birds must have flown from my salon to go elsewhere to nest in a home more comfortable with the approach of spring. But no, they were all there, against the mirror, to continue their flight.

Swallows in carved wood hanged on a old mirror
You see dear Kristin, yours is a “philosopher” swallow and mine are “melodious” swallows who, if you hum in their ears, will hang about to welcome you to their home.

Laeriss -

Thank you for visiting! I have been following your blog for a while now and it's always such a relaxing treat to see the beautiful images. You are truly living a beautiful life. I meant it what I said about the French people I encountered. I don't think I have ever experienced such warm and polite people anywhere I have ever traveled. I hope to get to Provence one day.

So beautiful, especially "flying" on the antique "silvered" mirror...
Your photos are always so very inspiring and serene.

I much prefer these swallows to the ones that swoop around my cottage in the evenings :)
