The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

Out of My Rear Window 5/8/11
What a bright, and beautiful Mother's Day! The sun is shining and it's going to get into the mid 60s today. A perfect day for gardening, and that is what I intend to do, just as soon as it gets a little bit warmer.
There have been a lot of visitors this week. Many of them have come in pairs. This is the Mallard duck pair that comes faithfully, every day.
A Mourning Dove pair
And the Canada goose pair, who spend every day eating and lounging at the spa.
Mr. Tom Turkey, however, has given up on his courting, and now comes by himself. He's got to be tired and hungry after all those weeks of strutting and showing off.
And, I solved the mystery this week, of why my bird bath has been losing water so rapidly. The culprit? Mr. Canada goose.
