Yesterday after work I went to my favorite local birding store just 15 minutes before it closed…
In just five minutes I had a new bird feeder, a mounting hook, 40lbs. of seed and thistle seed for my favorite finches when they come back to town.
Word traveled fast in the neighborhood today that there was a merry new feeder in town.
As Larry used to say, “We have good seed, no stems!” It was appropriate that I would think about him a lot today on the day before his earth birthday…
I watched the birds visit the front feeder all day. I can see it from my desk. As I watched, I was thinking about the hours Larry and I spent watching the birds come to the feeder in the back yard and how we fell in love with finches on our honeymoon.
I also thought about how great it is that my “too old to be called a boyfriend” Bill loves birdwatching as much as I do!
Little synchronicities make me smile gratefully through my fleeting tears.
I look forward to watching the happy birds this year, by myself and with Bill!
