Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.
~Charles G. Stater

Down by the creek

This little bird found a cool, serene spot to hang out on a branch overlooking the creek.  The colors of the vegetation reflecting in the water add to the tranquil scene.
