I almost didn’t go. It was 5 pm and I was tired. I had decided to finish the chores first. I thought perhaps I would wait until next weekend. It was cool and windy. A hot cup of tea sounded like a better plan than bundling myself into the car. I am really glad I went! I was wishing I could have recorded the birds song. It is the happiest melody I know. It is going to be a week of flowers and birds here. I have switched to running in the morning. I am already late to bed and still have the sprouts to wash, but I wanted to put up two photos first. It took a while to catch this little bird on a branch where I could see him clearly. I was admiring the flowers and saw him flying from branch to branch over my head. I walked around the tree following his progress until he paused for a moment in clear view.
