I took my camera with me when I went out to water early this morning. I’d already decided that because I had some morning errands to do in town, I wouldn’t try to pull weeds or remove any more Bermuda grass today. Besides, I’ve pretty much given up any hope of ever having a wonderful weed-free visitor-friendly garden with winding paths and inviting places to sit. Not going to happen. Perhaps when I’m retired. Perhaps never. But it doesn’t matter. I’ve decided to embrace my garden, weeds and all, and start calling it my “wildlife refuge”. LOL It’s all a matter of perspective. After all, weeds are just plants we don’t like. I’ve decided to like them!
There was definitely a lot of bird activity this morning. No less than twenty doves greeted me when I filled the bird feeders! Kind of creepy in a way…reminded me of “The Birds” movie. The white-winged doves are a bit aggressive anyway and they make a lot of noise and scare off the smaller birds. Thankfully I have several hanging feeders that they can’t hang onto. At one point a dove and a bluebird appeared to declare a bit of a truce.
Then there was an argument of some sort between the woodpeckers. One of them seemed quite happy to finally reach the top of the power pole.
I watched a mockingbird catch a grasshopper. Then another one grabbed a stick and carried to her nest.
The scissor tails were out and about.
The heron was on his stump.
It was a morning for the birds and I enjoyed spending time with them!
