Willow was seven months old on May Day. To celebrate her in my life, and for your viewing pleasure, here is her latest video. This one was shot by Mike, who just the other night observed that he loves her special countenance, adding "She makes life worth living." To which I replied that I thank God for her every day. To say that we love Willow is putting it mildly!
Birdfeeder at kitchen window. It has a one-way mirror that allows us to enjoy watching the birds (in this case a pair of House Finches) while they admire themselves and munch seeds with a complete sense of security and privacy.
Note the glass whale on window sill. Note that Willow, in her excitement, forgot that there even was a window sill, believing instead that she was on her way outside to check out the birds.
The glass whale somehow survived its crash into the sink. It's now in the bedroom. Clorox Wipes have become a standard, practically hourly, part of time in the kitchen. Willow in the meantime is in for a real show when parent birds introduce their young to the feeder.....
On second thought, I think I'll keep the blinds closed when the baby birds are being weaned.
