|March has been mostly lamb this year, gracing us with lots of sunny days which have now spilled into April. I am of a rebellious 'must get out in the sunshine' turn of mind and have escaped the house several times. This morning, I pulled some little weeds from around the bulbous geraniums, which are spreading with a mind of their own, and I unwrapped the little sourwood tree from its plastic winter wrap.
The lady cardinal's visits to the window sill are less frequent and less frantic in the mild weather. This morning, she brought a sunflower seed with her and ate while she watched me thumping around with my cane. The chickadees have decided that the Chinese dogwood and the rhododendron in front of the porch are their personal property and are out yelling "DEE DEE DEE DEE" to the rest of the avian world. I have had a little bird feeder on the porch all winter and until just recently, they were the only birds to find it. Now they have to chase the nasty house sparrows away, and they do it most handily in spite of their small stature.
