This heron landed on our neighbor's roof today while I was reading in the garden. S/he allowed me to take a few pics before deciding I had annoyed it enough and flew away. Our neighbors also have a pond with fish, so it was probably trying to decide whose pond fish looked tastier. They are gorgeous birds, aren't they?
I finished reading The Whole World Over by Julia Glass today. Great book. I'll start Kickboxing Geishas at work tonight.
Great weather today for sitting outside, smelling the blooming Russian Olive tree and the Constance Spry roses.
