This past week was no exception. A busy week, but it still left time to contemplate things going on through the open door.
The hummingbirds have been whizzing with purpose. The other day I discovered why and where they had been zooming to by the front door.
On Saturday morning about 10AM the doorbell rang. Unless I know someone is coming, I ignore them as it usually never anyone I know. But, this time the door also opened and it was the landlord and his brother! They had come to trim the palm tree. He had been saying for five months that they were going to come and voila! here they were. What a nice surprise.
They had a huge ladder but just a little, itty, bitty saw that in no way was going to cut those huge palms. I did not say anything and they came to the same conclusion so left to get a bigger saw..........
Upon return, the younger brother went up the ladder and for the next three hours sawed and sawed and sawed. Trimming those palm fronds was quite an ordeal. I only looked out from time to time because of my fear that Luis would fall off the ladder as he climbed higher and higher.
However, I have not seen the red headed woodpecker now that the fronds are gone and some of the other birds who liked to hide under the fronds. Hopefully they will return. I heard the woodpecker just yesterday but he was about a block away!
It IS the little things that count! Hummingbird nests, sky, views and sunsets. Ahh, yes.
