A New Season Begins Today


I'm a bit behind in my posting here on Blogger, mostly due to preparations I have to make (just like everyone else) in light of the coronavirus pandemic. I'm hunkering down as much as possible and saw a disturbing sight from the vantage point of my garden yesterday: Someone had a fire going in their outdoor space and was leaving it unattended!

It's was very windy now and a spark could easily "latch" on to the courtyard trees.

IF THE CORONAVIRUS DOESN'T WIPE US OUT, THE LACK OF CONCERN FOR OTHERS WILL.

Many people were yelling out their windows or peering out them (I have one example posted below) to try and figure out who built the fire as none of us knew the address of the building.


Finally it was put out by the resident in the building who started it, but if it happens again, and it probably will, I'll have the fire department come to my place and figure out who is doing this.

Btw, people did contact FDNY and they responded, but it was after the fact.

As I said, I will make sure I know the address of those who lit this fire as they are likely to do it again!

WHAT A SHAME THAT FDNY HAS TO USE THEIR MANPOWER FOR THINGS LIKE THIS, ESPECIALLY IN THE WAKE OF THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK!




ON ANOTHER NOTE:

How wonderful for me that a house finch couple ignored social distancing during these trying times of the coronavirus pandemic and spent a good part of their afternoon dining in my garden the other day. If you view the next series of as a sequence you can "follow" their special moment. Be forewarned: They are very cute birds and just make you smile.

Moreover, an image of this bird type (taken on another occasion) is available as wall art from one of my collections on Fine Art America.

The photo directly below shows how it looks framed but it is also available in an array of sizes which can be printed on to various surfaces; including acrylic, canvas, metal, special art paper, or wood (as seen below respectively). It is also available as a poster (my poster image not featured in this entry).

With more people working from home during this pandemic, it is especially nice to have pictures of birds around and it is also prudent to take a break from worrisome news overload by reading a book (such as Words In our Beak) about the pleasantries of life such as flora and fauna.

I'll leave it here for today, dear reader, but not without wishing that you remain well during this pandemic and beyond. Oh, yes, and if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, enjoy your first day of spring and if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, enjoy your first day of winter.
