About a month ago, I made plans to meet some friends at Rondeau on Tuesday, May 13th and Pelee on the 15th. Unfortunately the weatherman is not co-operating. Both of those days are supposed to quite full of rain here. But since those are the days we set aside for this, we will go thru with it. I will just have to take rain gear.
And it is raining here this afternoon. But I am spending the day indoors reading and listening to the radio. When I was in Texas, a good friend loaned a book to me. Wings in the Meadow by Jo Brewer. It is a story about the life cycle of the monarch butterfly. I have been looking forward to reading this book, but I had to finish the Collected Short Stories of Katherine Ann Porter first. I finished that and so now I am about to start reading a book about butterflies. First time for everything.
It is a bit chilly downstairs here in my den. Just went up and grabbed a sweatshirt to wear.
Earlier today, I enjoyed watched the Baltimore Orioles at my suet feeder. And yesterday morning I saw a House Wren hopping along on by backyard fence. It must have moved on, though. I have not yet heard a House Wren singing in the back. I’m surprised. They are usually here singing by this time. Should be moving in soon I would think.
One of my favourite duos is Alison Krauss and Robert Plant (of Led Zeppelin fame). Their voices blend magically. Here is a YouTube video of this team singing KILLING THE BLUES.
