RAN OUT OF DAYS LAST WEEK
FRIDAY LETTERS ARE A DAY LATE
Dear robin, I am so sorry that we had to dismantle your partially built nest on Wednesday. When I saw you fly into the hole in the door of the shed, carrying a twig in your mouth, I had mixed feelings. I was very excited at the thought of having robins nesting so near to the house, but I was disappointed because the shed is being demolished next week. I cleared your carefully arranged pile of twigs and leaves and we blocked up the hole in the door. On Thursday, when we were clearing the shed, you took the opportunity to fly in through the open door, twig in beak, to begin the building again. You looked a little downhearted when I met you in the shed and explained the situation. I hope you find somewhere else suitable. I’m happy to see that you were in the garden this morning looking for more nesting materials so I think perhaps you haven’t held the shed eviction against me.
Dear garden shed, I won’t really be sorry to see you go – you have been a bit of an eyesore in the garden for years. I’m looking forward to getting a new one which will be cobweb free (at least for a little while) and watertight.
Dear goldfinches, Where have you been? I was very excited to see you back at the bird feeder this week, and looking around in the garden for nesting materials.
Dear tree blossom, You are looking more splendid this year than I can remember for many years. I have heard it is down to lack of rain, wind and frost but, whatever it is, the results are spectacular. Everywhere I go I see beautiful blossom – I hope the rain and the wind stay away for a bit longer.
Hope you have a good Saturday.
