The birds enjoy the garden as much as I do. The hummingbirds are preoccupied with establishing their territories (fighting over the feeders) at the moment, and Mrs. Crow can be seen daily walking to and fro looking for juicy worms. Sparrows and juncos come into the garden several times a day searching the ground for tasty tidbits while they stamp their little feet. It has been very warm for a couple of days now (18C yesterday), and it feels wonderful to be outdoors in short sleeves again. Many of the shrubs and flowers are in bud.
