It was unannounced, it was long, it was necessary – but now it’s over. In case you haven’t noticed (:-( sob!) I haven’t posted here in about 3 months. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, so I did.
After my Mom’s death in July, my father-in-law’s in January, a heavy cold winter, and a close friend’s death earlier this month, I’m determined to focus on life. And with spring happening in all it’s glory, how can I do anything else?
Our cat put the idea of celebrating life right in front of us, producing 3 beautiful orange kittens. This was the feral cat we thought was going to have kittens a few months back, but that was a false alarm. We really don’t need any more cats, but these little ones are a breath of fresh air and we are enjoying their antics. I think we have homes for all three, and momma will be spayed as soon as her mothering duties are completed.
The redbuds were gorgeous this year. The flowers are beginning to fade now, and the perfect heart-shaped leaves are taking over. The woods are literally bursting!
And of course, migration is underway bigtime! I’ve been waiting for permission from the owner of a tract of land less than a quarter mile away to set my nets there – and the word came a few days ago – we’re good to go.
I spent most of yesterday setting up. It rained this morning, so no banding, but yes…pretty bird pictures to follow.
Life is good.
