Weekend Snapshot: Number 35
My first weekend snapshot was taken this Friday. After waiting eleven long years for the first blooms on any one of my peonies, the one below rewarded me by FINALLY blooming. I am still holding out hope for the other two who have yet to bloom. I won't say that it was quite worth the eleven year wait but it comes close. A truly beautiful flower to me.
The female cardinal had a long wait for her bath on Saturday. After perching on the edge while the male cardinal bathed, a mockingbird cut in line and she had to patiently wait yet again. The female cardinal is on the right top part of the photograph below, and the mockingbird has staked out the bath in the first shot. This was after the male cardinal had a long bath and the female was already getting restless. She didn't have to wait eleven years for her bath like I did for my peony to bloom but I'm sure it seemed that long to her.
I could almost hear her singing in the bathtub. Tweetdledeetweetdeldumlalalala.
