To all my friends out West…particularly Washington, Oregon and California…may you be safe and be spared.
I’m really going to miss the butterflies when they leave for the winter. The good news is that in the next few weeks, I’ll be planting a bunch of plants that will feed them next summer. I’m actually putting in two “butterfly bushes” and the hummingbirds will love this too.
Meet Georgio…I finally saw, and captured, an image of my birdseed thief!
I opened my window into the woods very quietly and slowly and confronted the beast.
“Hey you!” I bellowed.
“Who me?” Georgia squeaked back.
“Yes YOU! I’m making a citizen’s arrest…you’ve been a very bad mouse.”
“You have no authority over me, I’m a mouse. I have immunity from human laws.”
I pondered this statement for over an hour. While I pondered, Georgio casually munched on some sunflower seeds…my sunflower seeds. His lack of respect was disgraceful and frankly insulting.
I decided to go find my book listing the rules and regulations of the wildlife kingdom…specifically the mouse volume and when I got back to the window, HE WAS GONE!
I’m contacting my lawyer to see what my options are, in case I run into smarty pants Georgio in the future.
It’s been so much fun watching birds enjoying our birdbath. It took a few days for the birds to discover the water and now they’re loving it!
We’re taking distancing very seriously, Hubs has some health issues at the moment, and he’s had time to discover the birds. “There’s a whole world out there that we don’t even know exists.” I gave him my, “I’ve been telling you this for years look.” Seriously, I’m just glad that he’s had the opportunity to appreciate the birds, the deer, the turkeys, etc. Seeing him enjoy it has been fun for me.
I hope all of you have had some positive experiences during these trying times.
