It does not take the birds long to discover that the mess they make on the bird house with the food, when it falls to the ground below. There is bird seed everywhere, and some has even found a place to grow in the cracks in the stones. Last year I even had a cannabis plant (you know “weed”) growing in the garden. I think those birds must get a little high now and again when I think of what they eat.
I have also discovered that at this very moment I hear the voice of the Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain on our TV when the Christmas message is being broadcast. I am not really a monarchist, but at least she keeps herself to herself and her speech is just a review of the past year and she is not planning on building walls, or other architectural models. She is now speaking of peace of earth, and wishes everyone a Happy Christmas – no harm in that.
And now I say Happy Holidays everyone (I do not do Christmas) and relax. Perhaps we might make a few discoveries in the next year. I have discovered that I am now growing older with every year that arrives.
