Wild Roses and Blackberry Blossoms
While planting ferns last week, I got into some poison ivy. It's not hard in this yard. It was right below the wrists of my gardening gloves.
Early this morning, I was drinking some herbal tea when I saw a chipping sparrow right outside the window. He was singing so sweetly, I just watched him. His throat would go up and down and his little body seemed to move as he sang. A few inches away a blue jay watched the sparrow. Too close for the sparrow who flew away followed quickly by the blue jay flying off the deck.
I went to watch the birds on the feeder only to find a squirrel hanging upside down eating suet. Tapping on the window, the squirrel ran off the deck. Almost flying the two levels to make it to the ground.
