Beware the ditch at the bottom of the hill.
























That poster is *adhered.* It's fully-seated in the grout lines. As a collector, my ambivalence was intense; maybe with time I COULD get it off. I consoled myself with a quote from my therapist, "Handling ambivalence is a sign of maturity."






Notice the word hor (lined through) between pump and house.

Yes! This so much more then bluebirds.
Yet it still might link a bit to my bluebird story currently; 3 bluebirds have been occupying, by flying around my yard for a few days now. They might settle in for a bit. for a bit I say...because on springs like this, when blue birds do find my yard worthy of a visit. I know...the beautiful dark metallic swallows will follow and will chase out the bluebirds who by the time the swallows arrive, will sit on eggs.
