This morning is wet and blustery as I sit at the computer reading email and cleaning out my inbox. Stuck inside I dream of spring and what I want to accomplish when it arrives.
A gust of wind smashes the large bush that grows in front of my window and I suddenly notice the birds that have taken refuge in its branches. Hanging on tightly they are blown this way and that, yet seem unconcerned by the wild ride. Instead, between gusts, they manage to move from branch to branch to consume the red berries there.
Closest to the window is a female cardinal
The other visitor is more clearly defined here
Which gives me two reasons to finally clean this window and remove the screen. I never open this window anyway so why not?
IF YOU NOTICED YOU MIGHT ASK: Why is there white tissue paper hanging in front of this window? Well, I haven’t exactly made the shades planed to be installed under the cornice and valance I made last year. Ergo, the tissue keeps the morning sun from blinding me while I work!
Perhaps instead of dreaming of spring I should use this down time to make those shades? 😉
