A Welcome Blue Surprise

Over the years a handful of garden birds have hurled themselves at my patio glass door, and a couple died. But that was before I heard of a 'zen wind curtain', otherwise known as a 'bird saver'.

Zen wind-curtain wafts
‘Desert Camo’ paracord—-
Ends avian deaths

Since building this I've had only one minor collision the last year, when a bunch of the cords got caught on the Clematis on the left side, leaving a large inviting gap a pigeon just couldn't resist.

Mornings can be a struggle:

Sun beams push through blinds
Feline demands morning rubs
Slug-a-bed needs tea...

A few years ago my mother transplanted forget-me-nots into the flower bed in my garden, but they mostly died. However, now and again one or two will appear and flower beautifully in the grass.

Interloper on the lawn
Forget-me- ... not nice!

It strikes me now that this reads as if I have a strong dislike of this pretty little flower, but in fact I like them.
