Birds, Bees, Butterflies and Sunshine

I am blessed to live in a neighborhood with lots of old growth trees. They provide lovely shade in the hot summer months. Today I am enjoying the sunshine after what has felt like weeks and weeks of cold and rain. Looking out across the yards I am amazed at God’s palette of colors. From the blue-green of the pines to the bright green of the baby leaves on some of the trees, the variation of color is amazing. I am also enjoying the birds. The air is full of the  chirping and singing of all types of birds. I have watched baby birds land on the phone line as they gingerly begin to fly and adult birds as they hunt for insects in the grass. We also have a nest of baby birds nestled in the jasmine vines on the carport. Momma bird has been by to feed them and keep a careful watch on where I am. We have also be graced with a couple of butterflies and a couple of fat, buzzing bumble bees. Occasional the sound of the city, be it a siren, the train or a distant lawn mower interrupts the calm but soon it is back to the birds and the wind that stirs the gentle scent of the jasmine. My constant companion outside is Sadie who enjoys napping in the sun. Soon it will be time to start dinner but until then I think I will just sit back with another glass of tea..All and all I would say it is a pretty great day.
