Happy Mother's Day!

Nest in geranium hanging backet empty

Everywhere I step, baby birds. First a Spotted Towhee’s fledgling fluffy ball of feathers standing in the center of the stone steps to the lower orchard. Next a young robin, noticed as a result of the mother robin’s chip chip chipping. Next a fledgling junco in the grass at the head of the steps to the main orchard, fledged from the geranium hanging basket. I know I need to watch my steps for sure.

As difficult as it must be for mother birds to train the newly fledged, dependent on mother’s foraging for food but free to fly into danger with no tether, it is even more difficult for you mothers. We even more so must watch our steps every day and  pray.
