This photography resembles an impressionistic painting to me. Really a beautiful canvas of shades of fall colors. I spent this afternoon in my backyard cutting back vines, and soaking up the wonderful afternoon sun and a sky so blue you could smear it deep across the whole heaven.(Thank you, Tim Dicke… again… ;~)
I discovered a bird’s nest on the ground that was tucked in a corner of one of my garden beds. Seems the bird (a robin? blue egg left there…) found some nest ingredients in my compost pile since the bottom of the nest were three old remnants of tea bags that I toss in my compost pile. It’s a fancy tea that I order from CA (Mighty Leaf Tea) and the bags don’t break down — must be some fine plastic filament. Silk would break down, yes?
I was humored to see the old tea bag lining lightly woven by mud and grass into the nest. So not really knowing what else to do with the nest, I put it in my compost pile to one side. Maybe next year, the same bird will find the tea bag liners again?
It’s so easy for me to be outside and bliss out in the garden… talking with the plants and just getting my hands in the dirt. It’s a gift…
