Garden Journal – Chapter 19
Spring 2009 Continued
What a day today has been. Bought some more seeds and planted them right away. I certainly want to take advantage of this warm spell. I planted chive, peas, catnip, cat grass, Chinese Lanterns, California poppies and Four O’clocks. Some things went in the garden, some in the pots and some in the flower beds.
Now, I do have to update you about my little bird that appeared last year and used his squatter’s rights to sleep on my front porch. I wrote about him, last year, in Chapter 9 of this Journal. Chapter 9 – Click Here . The good news is that he is back and seems to have found himself a cozy nest, of sorts. Again on my front porch but this time in a straw shade that I have rolled up over the winter.
The cute part of this little tale is that he seems to have found a spring mate. I know this because I caught them coming home for the night and then snapped this picture of not one but two tails, all snuggled up for the night!
I wonder if I should call this “sex in the city”! *chuckles* I figure that my two birdies might even put a nest in that rolled up shade which is okay because I won’t need it till the summer and, of course, by then the babies will have been hatched.
