Here is a picture of the evening moon over my little apple tree. Can you see the red and white. birdhouse in the apple tree? For the first time since it was put up two little birdsare making their nest there. Just two little sparrows who are bringing dry grass and twigs and mating quite shamelessly in the branches of the little tree that will soon be glowing in the evening light with pale blossoms. It seems to be my week for catching birdies “in flagrente”. They are very sweet and it is exciting to think I might have eggs hatching in the little birdhouse before too long.
The other picture is taken from the ferry from Sorel to the north shore of the St. Lawrence. I went out with a friend of mine to look for snow geese but since someone gave me very poor directions as to where they had been seen, it turned into something of a “wild goose chase” and only a few Canada geese were spotted. It is wonderful to see the river though. I like it very much and always think of old pioneers paddling down the great River wondering what fate awaited them.
