Just above my terrace there’s a little drainage where swallows nest every year.
It’s so amazing that they come back every single year, to the same place. It is nice to hear the little ones at night, waiting for their parents to come back from their daily search for food.
I like to stand out at the terrace and look around to see them fly over the garden, and then back into their nest.
Every year the coming back of the swallows means the summer has arrived. They are so alive and full of energy that it is inspiring. They make me think of freedom. Every time.
And of course, my kitties love watching them too. 😉
