Eye on the prize
War Thoughts at Home, 1918
First stanza, Robert Frost
On the backside of the house
Where it wears no paint to the weather
And so shows most its age,
Suddenly blue jays rage
And flash in blue feather.
This is the lovely, saucy Blue Jay( photographed through the kitchen window), one of our backyard visitors.
"This common, large songbird is familiar to many people, with its perky crest; blue, white, and black plumage; and noisy calls. Blue Jays are known for their intelligence and complex social systems with tight family bonds. Their fondness for acorns is credited with helping spread oak trees after the last glacial period."Cornell Labs of Ornithology
I'm off to a Garden Club luncheon on Cape Cod, more later!
Here are some photos from the gorgeous summer house where we had our June Garden Club Luncheon, what a house, it sleeps 20! Built in the 1800s and recently updated and added to...
The harbor view from the house.
