Letter: Lots to see outside, indoors not so much

Posted

To the editor:

Well, as you can imagine, I am housebound until July 1. Inside the house it is beginning to get really boring as I do the same things every day as you probably do too. 

However, outside is a different story. First the rampant invasive rose bushes turned my world a misty green, now they are big, bright rolls and all the low bushes have followed suit.There are puddles of blue flowers and a peony opened its big marble sized buds when I cut some and brought them into the house.

Outside I refill the grape jelly glass every day for the orioles and catbirds and put orange halves on the deck to remind the orioles that this is really a nice place for them. It isn’t always their treat as a chipmunk was seen spread eagled on top of a piece. With that charming mental picture I will leave you as I go out to see what has changed since yesterday.
