Have You Ever Seen A Western Bluebird?

We hadn't. So it was exciting to find this pair spending much of the day sitting on the fence posts around Indigo's garden. We have a plan with Indigo to go up to her place to help out in the garden once a week (or more, of course!). So, we went up the other day and there they were sitting calmly, even while Roger mowed the knee-high grass that had grown between the garden beds.
I wish I had thought to photograph the garden, but I just couldn't take my eyes off these little beauties. You'll have to imagine the full bed of garlic, the beds of spinach, onions, carrots, blueberries, artichokes, salad greens, raspberries, potatoes, chives, oregano, etc. She planted extra tomatoes and basil for us. She knows what we'd miss most this year, not having our own garden space. We're lucky, we know we are. Homegrown tomatoes, bluebirds, and love.
