We've had Robins visit us before. But not in flocks like over the past few weeks.
At times there have been dozens. Too many to count. Taking turns with the dove and finch at the water features. Hopping about the lawn and keeping a look out from high places.
One year Weeks Roses mailed me a Dick Clark rose. It is tall and nearly ever-blooming. Even in the semi-shaded spot.

Our waiter wasn't around for a group shot, so Gerry did the honors.
Back at home, Easter ( or if you prefer, Spring) Cactus- hybrid Rhipsalidopsis gaetneri is a happy camper on the patio table.
I can't speak for anyone else's window on the world, but this was mine this morning. Finch at the feeder. Robins at the bird bath. Matilija Poppy, Romneya coulteri, has naturalized in the back canyon. With 3 surgeries in 6 months, I've been banned from climbing uneven ground until the muscles have stabilized. I'll have to hire help to thin the stand which is choking one of our fig trees.
The dove on the gate reminds me how fortunate I am. Time "off" turned into a time to get my life in order. To prioritize. To make peace and gather strength. To decide in the wisdom of Matthew 6:26. The most useless way to occupy time is with worry. Like a rocking chair, it will keep you busy, but won't solve a thing.
Until we meet again, Thank YOU for all YOU do to make the world more beautiful.
