They’re Baaak

Pigeons and such 013

They are back and the garden is once again full of little birdies. The songbirds keep to the trees and the whole joint is jumping. Mama had already told me to leave them alone and I do but boy, when they all start a chirping and singing. Here are some photos mama had me post.

Lost Somewhere In Paradise

Alright 050

Spring and summer mornings,

wake us as the sun is dawning,

to a chorus of birds,

singing in the apple tree.

Rushing out to greet the day,

in the garden I see,

the beauty that surrounds me.

Everything so lush and green,

flowers bursting into bloom,

roses, opening to the rays of the sun.

You came out,

with a worried frown

and I laughed,

as I told you –

to put a smile on your face.

Look about you everywhere –

we are lost somewhere in paradise.

Bird on the Road 049

Our cat Sid,

is climbing the apple trees.

he’s found his paradise in our garden.

Come take my hand,

look at our house,-

it may not have towers and gold all about,

but in it we are king and queen

and our four footed friend Sid is the prince.

Come take my hand,

let’s walk along our country roads,

where we can enter medieval forests,

full of mystical creatures

and when the day is done

and the moon and stars come out,

we can cuddle and kiss,

feel the passion which brings us such bliss.

Two lovers that can express,

their feelings without a single word,

lost somewhere in paradise –

along with our cat Sid.

Bird Party


There is a lesson to be learned when Mama puts out food for the birds that fly into our garden.


I sit upon the fence or windowsill and watch them gather together and feed. Mama got some photos of the birds before they flew away. Here is what I learned.

Sid quote: If birds come to feed in your garden don’t make too much movement and don’t make too much noise. Otherwise the birds will fly up and make a whole lot of noise.
