I just realized how many pictures I've posted of me in this spot on the couch with Morris. What I also realized is that you haven't a clue what I am always looking at. On a good day we start out chatting on the couch with Morris and our coffee and end the day the same way. We are always in the same spots on the couch. Although I gave up coffee in the hospital and am now drinking hot ginger lemon herbal tea.
What I haven't shown you is that the couch is right by the window and we are watching two of the feeders while we chat. This week we had a special visit from a Varied Thrush...an infrequent happening and we were delighted to be there to see it. At this time of year our bird population is mostly juncos, house finches, goldfinches, quail, mourning doves, Eurasian doves, chickadees, red-winged blackbirds and the occasional hawk, magpie, and woodpecker. In the evening we watch the deer come and tidy up under the feeders. Soon the juncos will be moving north and the bluebirds, nuthatches, song sparrows, robins, and all the other summer birds will be arrive.
In late November I shared that I had bought seven amaryllis bulbs at a closeout sale. I knew they were too late for Christmas but as it worked out the first one bloomed the week I got home from rehab and the last one opened yesterday... Next fall I will watch for the closeout sales on these bulbs so I will have them into February again.
