I love working on the computer in our office overlooking the back garden. It's usually bright and sunny in there and the view right now is very inspiring. Just look at this beautiful lilac tree.(The cardinals are on the INSIDE of the window -- a plaque made of stained glass by a friend)
It's not always the greatest place for productivity, though -- since there's a lot of action going on out there these days!
Today, I just happened to look up and this is what I saw......this little squirrel sitting on the table beside the bird bath. He stayed in that position for a good couple of minutes. What was he contemplating?
Suddenly he took a flying leap.... and landed right on the edge of the bird bath! Was he going to take a shower?
Nope! He was just thirsty!
So was this Brown-Headed Cow Bird...
...taking a drink, while an American Robin struts by...
...but he needed a shower, as well!
