and I sit without movement, there is so much of the natural world all around me. The mother robin has been giving everyone hell for days. I assumed she’d built her nest in the old apple tree. I forgot that even mother robins have innate techniques to lead the animals and giants away from the babies.
She has them semi-hidden in a tiny conifer on the side of the herb garden – only a few feet off the ground. This makes me think that she is inexperienced or that the old ginger cat is gone. Now that I think of it, I haven’t found his fur on the seat cushion on the front porch. I’m sad. He belonged to everyone – choosing Andy’s back steps in the afternoon, Scott’s tractor seat in the morning, and I believe that he slept on our porch most nights on a comfy rocking chair. I’m told he sauntered over to his original house two doors down for meals. I’ll miss you Mr. Tabby cat.
Today’s Buzz: the bees seem to highly favor my almond flowers, but I am told that almond honey is of poor quality and used mostly in the baking industry! What!
