Shadbush berries ripening here too, just outside my door. There will be waxwings, and robins, and especially the catbird.

Just came inside from the backyard where I was, what else, gardening! No cedar waxwings today alas, but chickadees, juncos, song sparrows, purple finches, towhees, one intrepid northern flicker and who knows what else. Today was weeding, vine cutting, honeysuckle trimming, salvia pampering, laxiflora and Veronica studying, perovski watering, raspberry trimming, ditto apple tree, ditto grapevine! Plus four different birdbaths to refill (Hydrangia Pond, Apple Pond, Rose Pond, Forest Pond). The birds are so used to me, I sometimes have to slow my own elderly walk to avoid running into them . Another wonderful day in the garden followed by reading your reminiscences! Perfect day.
