In from the garden
Well, I must admit, it still seems odd, with not having to get up at 4:30am everyday....my Joan Crawford routine out the window. But since not working, I still tend to get up early...hard to break the body alarm clock. But even though I'm far from a morning person, I do like the quite time, taking my coffee leisurely, and it has allowed me to actually sit at my café set and enjoy the views. The birds have been eating more than I have seen! What pigs! This is the first spring I have gotten a slew of Blue Jays....a family of five. The little ones are noisy as hell and are in the tree out the kitchen window, now branching. Between them, the Cardinals, the Catbirds, and the Starlings I don't know who's the loudest. I do believe the parents are used to my presence now. They fly to the sill and take seed to the little ones.
Most of the birds I get all have babies currently, and my neighbors all think that I have single handily tripled the bird variety around here. Mistress Maddie #1 Fan stayed over last night, as we are heading to the Raven Resort for some splish- slpash time at the pool finally. The weather is just beautiful ...., this is what I'm talking about! But poor MM#1F couldn't take all the bird noise this morning. His exact words were " Ok ...it's 5:15am. It's like trying to sleep in a damn bird arboretum with a thousand birds." The poor thing. I gave him extra coffee, and the last pancake with some whipped cream. Meanwhile Buster Bolfig Borghese would rather enjoy his time away from windows.... and guard the pebble garden.
Off to dip my fanny......tootles!
