Those bossy crows were jostling over which of them would be first to the birdbath this morning, while a chatty squirrel taunted them from the safe harbor of a redwood tree. Gentle green & brown sparrows nesting nearby took a shower in the birdbath as well. Bees are buzzing. And a tiny spider walked across my bathroom floor–long day ahead for that little one. Meanwhile, lo and behold, Mr. Cactus Head (aka Mr. Echinocerous Rigidissiumus) decided to wait for this day to show off his gaudy summer crown. Summer has arrived.
