What gorgeous pictures! I’ve been out of pocket…PC probs, health probs…but I’m back, and have been trying to get a picture of the two male Indigo Buntings at my feeder. I’d had a bit of a dispute with a fellow (& others) in my writers’ group as they disagreed that male Indigo Buntings have black feathers that look a striking blue in the sunlight.
Well. I haven’t managed the pix yet, but did quote my Audubon Society bird book. I think the IB is magical!
Love your Blog, and your writing about your Mom, and your child. As for not graduating college, I had a childhood much like A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, yet grew up with enthusiasm and passion, held down a job that required a degree (I told them the truth) and was once asked to TEACH at a college! Some of us are unique, Beth, and our friends know this and love us for ourselves.
