Perch with a view

Birds.

Gazing out over iced waves.

Wondering when webbed feet will finally touch water.

Enjoying the sensation of walking on water?

Frozen feet in golden flight.

    That is a lovely shot. I particularly like the church steeple in the background, bearing witness to the seasons. There’s something wonderfully permanent about that.

    I wish ducks could write, don’t you? Tell us what they make of the world, where they go, what they see. One of the few things I envy the animal kingdom is the gift of flight. Even with the lingering winter, that bird still has so much available to it that I might envy.

    Hardwood mulch is the bark peeled off of hardwood trees and shredded. Thank the Lord there is no smell involved.

    Now if that was a pile of cow manure, well that would be a horse of a different color! Heeehehehe!
