Residents, visitors and other beings extraordinaire! 2

 “I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.” –  Emily Dickinson

I once read somewhere, that, ‘there is nothing like attracting birds to a birdbath……It’s also great to watch birds at feeders, but there’s something particularly exciting about watching birds splashing away or sipping water from a bath.’ However, the bird baths that I have, draw more birds than the feeder, and, there are certain bird species that do no use the feeder at all. And yes……………………..a pecking order exists!

“Let’s go for a walk……

Hushed Tempest

“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.” – Haruki Murakami

Earlier this month, I was asked to share, if I would, a silent storm of love. The request caught me by surprise and I ineffectually tried to wriggle my way out of the situation.
