Dear Birds, I love watching you come to the bird feeder and then pop over to the bird bath to follow your meal with a good drink. But man oh man you guys go through the feed, it's like it was free or something, oh wait, it is free.
And by the way, I peeked at the cardinal nest yesterday...there is only one little one that seems to be hatched, still more eggs but Mama nearly has a coronary every time I go near, so no photos yet.
Dear Roses, you are absolutely spectacular this year....probably because of all the rain we have had. And how fortunate that everything seems to be so lush right now as I am going on a Garden Walk tomorrow. I can imagine the beauty that awaits. FYI...just read where this has been the "all-time wettest" year in Chicago history....doesn't surprise me.
Dear "Great Gatsby", you were one treat for the eyes with your gorgeous costumes and settings, however I was a little disappointed on the whole. There was no "depth" to the movie, I guess I wanted more meat, but I can't complain about the visuals. Leo is a beauty with those blue eyes as well as Carey Mulligan as Daisy.
Dear Esther Williams, I read in the newspaper this morning that you passed away peacefully in your sleep yesterday at 91. Most of you are too young to remember Esther Williams, she was a unique movie star in the 40's swimming her way to stardom. Her movies may not have been great art, but they were certainly fun and there has been no one like her since Thank you Ms. Williams for entertaining millions with your unique style and beauty.
Hope everyone has had a delightful week and that next week will be even better. Happy Summertime.
