I love thinking back to my childhood and using the prompt set up by Children's Picture Book author and illustrator @Helen Stephens has really helped me to tap into some great memories.
I love Swifts, seeing them return again this year lets me know that the weather is taking a turn for the better. Swift's mean sunshine and warm weather and the move towards more daylight hours. But they are also creatures of mystery and folklore as well as being just simply quite amazing!
