A Tarda's Lesson

Words In Our Beak’s goal is to open readers to a simple understanding of the winged world and their environment. Set in a rooftop urban garden in New York City, my story is told in the voice of Cam, a female cardinal, who visits it. Words In Our Beak is directed to children and adults who are curious about birds, and want to learn about them from a unique perspective. The book includes hundreds of images of flora and fauna, links to movies, as well as to informative narratives that have been created by the author.

Hello there, sweet pod
I have been missing the beautiful blooms from all my tulips, as they had such a brief stay in my urban (NYC) garden this season which was due to the heavy rainfalls we have had in the city this year. And, as I type this text, I am thinking who cares if I am missing my tulips? Blogging can be so narcissistic, which is one reason that I've been more sporadic in posting here on TLLG (but more regular on nybg's tumblr, TLLG's FacebookPinterest and Vimeo). 

On the other hand, if you, dear reader, find yourself missing the blooms from the flowers in your garden or the flowers in public spaces in the area where you live, I am here to tell you that you are not alone: take heart in knowing that there is plenty of beauty to behold in what remains, as my Tulipia Tardas reminded me when I discovered their leaves still playing with the pods, long after the flowers were gone.
