The Honeysuckle Bush
Jack and I spent some time lazing together in the hammock, looking up into the pine trees, and enjoying the warm breezes. It was really a special time. We have a pair of orioles that are nesting here, but we didn’t know where, though we expected it was up in one of the old pines. Jack had been in the hammock after working hard while I was in the house (on a beautiful day painstakingly backing up my laptop files ), and he happened to spot the oriole hop down into its nest high in the tree out where he was. So he called me on his cell phone to come out with him a bit so he could show me the nest which is not your usual kind of nest so it was neat even though it was high enough we really couldn’t see it that much anyway. Still fun though. We also took a quick ride down to the river and there was my beautiful big ancient honeysuckle bush all full of pink flowers. I took a picture of part of it, but wish you could have seen what it looked like, so sweet and beautiful.
We have had enough rain that the river is very high. We went out there again tonight so I could get some pics, but the mosquitoes were awful so we didn’t dally.
