Taking a Break
You know that the birding is winding down when you see binoculars pointed at a birder's toes. What a sad state of affairs. I couldn't have posted this picture in good conscience if this fellow hadn't covered his face. I just love the way he's so uninhibited. Gals - how many of you could sprawl on a picnic table like this for any amount of money? Maybe it's just me that's all hung up?
Anyway, now we have to ferret out the nesting birds and content ourselves with peony bloom, cumulus clouds that are producing less rain then we'd like and the endless job of tugging away at those audacious weeds that are so much easier to uproot after a good soaking.
Like Lynne at Hasty Brook - I'm taking a break, but will continue to check in on all my fellow bloggers. (Happily - Lynne is back:0) I'm betting a lot of us are feeling the multiple pulls of family obligations, yard work, travel plans and the need to be outside basking in gratitude for having that long winter behind us. Hmmmm?
It's so great to have the windows open.
