Are you all still locked down or are you in an area that is back to normal? My
county in Pennsylvania has finally moved into the “yellow phase,” which
means a few more things are now allowed to open.
Since I lost my glasses about two weeks ago and no eye doctors are seeing patients yet, I find myself jumping out of my chair whenever I see a flash of color at the bird feeder.
A few days ago I caught sight of an indigo bunting, which stops by every
year, but only for a short time. You can see why it would catch my eye even without glasses. It’s a beautiful bird!
New this year were two pairs of orioles! They started on my hummingbird feeder, so I put oranges out for them. They stuck around a few days, but have since moved on.
Another noticeable visitor that I can see even without glasses is the rose-breasted grosbeak. We’ve had a pair for a number of years but now have three pairs. And let me tell you, they eat a lot!
And then, of course, I have squirrels who enjoy hanging upside down on the feeder to eat until I go out and chase them away. The yard is surrounded by nut trees, but they seem to enjoy fast food at the feeder.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re enjoying the little things in life…like what is taking place right outside your window!
Thanks for the wonderful diversion during this trying time. I just finished Shades of Gray and my eyes are still wet! I knew they would get together, but didn’t know I would feel so strongly at the end.
Thanks so much. Hard to imagine when I wrote SHADES that it would be read during these strange times. So glad that it could transport you to another time and place!
Would love to see what happens to Andrea after the war
