I had wanted to write about the beautiful quilt that arrived yesterday but Mike is out for the evening and I don't know how to post the pictures so I will do that tomorrow with his help. Just know that this morning as I lay on my couch still fighting a nasty cold, I wrapped myself up in it and it felt soooo good!
As I mentioned previously, we now have a troublesome little bunny in our yard. I walked out into the garden this afternoon to find that he had chewed off the top of one of my stargazers. The tulips and shrubs are one thing, but by chewing up my lilies this little trouble maker is asking for a fight. Don't worry all of you animal lovers I'm no Elmer Fudd so I went out and bought some blood meal as someone had mentioned. I have always avoided chemicals and such in my yard so many of the repellents scare me a little. They did have coyote urine however...apparently this is the natural choice. Ummmmm...still not there and if this little critter makes me pay a bunch of money for pee I just may be calling Elmer Fudd. The next option is finding a humane trap for it and releasing it a couple miles away.
I've been thinking alot about what Georgie may be saying about this whole situation. I picture her wagging her little finger at the bunny for upsetting mommy and then smiling and dancing around because he is "so cute!" Calla has decided that we just need to put a scarecrow in the yard. : ) As much as I consider this little guy a pest he is keeping me on my toes and I am considering giving him a name. Any suggestions?
AS for the birds, they continue to visit. Thank you to all of you that offered suggestions for the type of bird that I saw but none of them are correct, at least so far. I have made peace with the fact that I may never know what I saw. Perhaps they don't truly exist. I'll describe them one last time however, they had powder blue heads, and I mean their entire heads, front and back down to their necks. Their chests were a creamy white and their backs and wings were beige. I haven't seen them again and I don't really expect to. I consider them a gift like so many other little things in my life. They showed up when I most needed them to and I haven't needed them since. Instead, I have robins, sparrows and bright yellow finches visiting everyday. The robin sings a beautiful song every morning and then a different one in the evening. I consider him a gift too.
