I woke early this morning for some reason.
I was going to go back to sleep, but the devil got into me so I got up instead. I’m glad I did.
Dawn was just breaking, and I stood out in the garden for a while. The dawn chorus was quite spectacular.
There were blackbirds, thrushes, robins, tits [of the feathered variety], finches and a couple of pheasants [or it may have been peasants?] all vying with each other to be the loudest. It was the most beautiful sound.
As I stood there, a fox strolled across the lawn which didn’t please Sandy. She shot off after him and woke the neighbour who was fast asleep under the hedge. I don’t know why it is, but whenever the neighbour has a rake of pints, he always ends up sleeping it off in my garden. Doesn’t he know he has a garden of his own for that purpose?
I went back indoors, feeling full of the joys of spring.
Then it started to piss rain.
Now I’m tired.
After all, I’ve been up since dawn.
I think I’ll have a nap.
A beautiful morning here also. another 86F today. Blue jays, catbirds, woodpeckers,mocking birds,thrashers,etc all giving it the works out there.Ah well, I wonder what’s on TV.
I was woken up this morning at 5.30 by a blackbird singing his little heart out. The shotgun sorted the little fucker out.
Neighbour has two roaming peacocks (fox had the hen last year). The pair of em come into our garden every day and start showing their feathers to the green watering can – they’re very bemused by why it isn’t interested!
Squawk like there’s no tomorrow as well the feckers, but damn they’re exotic!
Isn’t it wonderful how you re all appreciating nature, just becuse my little brain fart this morning? You all really ought to be very grateful.
There you have page one of the novel, get on with it now…
(I said novel not some hodgepodge, ‘best of posts’ collections)
Hugely appreciating your brain fart GD. – and mick’s comment about peacocks. It reminded me of a desperate tortoise I once saw in the early morn’, trying to make love to a deflated football. The tortoise I mean, not me.
Oh god, I’m going back to my own nap….
SAm – Hodepodge? How very dare you! As for the opening chapter of a novel, where would I go from there? Apart from back to bed, of course.
Geri – I’m glad someone did. I think I’ll leave an old hairbrush out in the garden – see if I can attract some hedgehogs.
