I need to report that the reason I’m giving you a photo blogpost today is because my younger step-daughter (the lefty, artistic one) had been in the ICU all week with a very angry pneumonia.
She was not responding to the first round of anti-biotics and the fluid was filling her lungs and seeping between the lung tissue and chest wall. Very painful. She has had surgery and is doing better, but life has been a bit stressful around here. Hubby has been at her side like the Gallant Knight that he is…
Needless to say, I’ve fallen a bit behind in my writing. Well, I guess I’m saying it because it does need to be said.
I’ve fallen behind in my writing.
But, never fear, a reader sent to me a photo journal a while back and she told me to ‘keep it for a day when I didn’t have time to write’.
Today is that day.
Thank you, kind reader!

Whether you’re a ‘bird person’ or not, this is stunning!!! Not to detract from the sheer magic of it, but in practical terms, how MANY trips would a bird have to make with that tiny little quantity of mud/clay it could carry? (and how far from the nest is the source)
If you take the construction of a “circular bowl” in your stride as instinctive – how the heck does the bird come up with the windbreak/entrance design that shields the eggs/chicks from the elements – and at what point in fashioning the bowl do they start to construct it?
