What a lovely couple of days. Yesterday I woke up to Hedwig's theme playing in my head and yes, it was the 20th anniversary date of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone!
All kinds of celebrations are held in all kinds of places, including Facebook where, if you type Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw or Harry Potter, a wand magically appears and sheds all kinds of sparks on the page!
But today ...
I've got a bird feeder and all kinds of creatures come visit and feast. For years I've heard doves but they never came by. Finally, in April, one came to feed.
This morning, there were TWO doves at the feeder! Then a little while later, a hummingbird came and perched on a branch about 4 feet from me (where I was sitting in a chair very very quietly).
A gorgeous day.
How is your day? See any bird or critter people to come and say hi?
EDIT: I'm thinking I need a bird bath. Something from which they can drink, above ground level. I have a tray (1-1/2 inches - 2 inches deep and about 14"x14" rectangular) on the ground, but ... something on a stand would be nice. Sure it would freeze in the winter, but then, so does the tray on the ground freeze in the winter and I have to clean out ice and put in fresh each morning.
