E.B. White's essay, DRESSING UP (posted above) was published on this day of April 20th in 1946.
Like White, observing the antics of house sparrows gives me great pleasure and the images posted directly below, feature this bird type spending time in my rooftop garden (during different seasons).
As some of you know, my garden is the setting for the book series, Words In Our Beak, and the story is told from the perspective of Cam, a female cardinal.
