It seems a little Early…

… But I do believe the first signs of spring are manifesting.

This morning was warm enough that I could resume my habit of sitting at the back door with my morning cup of strong coffee, and greet the birds.  I was just in time to farewell the pink and grey galahs as they headed off to wherever they go, and I was delighted to be visited by a pair of Western Rosellas who sat for a while on the clothesline checking out the yard.  As always the Yellow Plumed Honeyeaters, the White Cheeked Honeyeaters and New Holland Honeyeaters darted about, and I noted some were carrying twigs and grass. It appears that the urge to build a nest is upon them.  As if in confirmation of this a pair of Wattlebirds  performed a raunchy looking mating dance flit and flirt performance.

A good start to the day.

About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    Actually when we are planning the ride is in the main wildflower season isn’t it? If so we must include a jaunt to see.
