As we were watching two doves at our bird bath this morning, I was relating to my husband the amazing variety of birdlife that you have all around you. I told him it was like something out of a fairy tale. And here I find another post underscoring that thought!! Parrots in the trees....I'll never get over it.ReplyDelete
And is there anything lovlier than a sugar maple???
Not unlike our New England in September and October!ReplyDelete
