Oh, how hectic life has gotten in Flartopia. Maybe this weekend I'll have a moment to sit down and write about it all...or part of it, anyway.
In the meantime, I did take a chance this evening to sit outside and enjoy the lovely, bug-free spring weather that has come back. I smiled at these chaps, who are my favorite birds. Miss Chef and I have both noticed them hanging around the area between our patio and the neighbor's pear tree.
At one point I put down my book and went inside to get something...and in glancing out the small corner window in the kitchen, I realized why these birds were being so bold, sitting on the chair across the table from me and chick-a-dee-dee'ing so loudly.
I was in their way!
This nest box is on a pole at the edge of our patio, camouflaged by the carefree Carolina jasmine planted by the previous owners. So now I've cleaned that corner window for the first time since we've moved in. Next I just have to see if Miss Chef will leave her camera with me, and I can manage to be home when the light is better!
Have a chick-a-dee-delightful weekend, y'all!
