Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. (Rainer Maria Rilke)

The Amazing Chirpy

I realize I just posted about Chirpy, but he is truly an amazing fellow.

Here he is with one of the juvies.  Not only does he come to the window and chirp for food.

He now sits on my hand and eats seed!  I am so amazed!  This is the only shot I got because the camera click scared him and I didn't want to try again and have him permanently spooked.

So instead of another photo, I decided to paint a self-portrait commemorating Chirpy sitting on my hand in the backyard for the first time.  I, of course, took the liberty of shaving a few pounds off of myself, LOL!

It's true - I don't garden much in the humid and hot rainy season, but I do machete my way through the mossies in the backyard to check on all of the plants.  I happily discovered that the Plumeria is budding up and getting ready to bloom.

This view shows all the little bud nobbins' (not a horticultural word).   Looks like there will be quite a few beautiful blooms this year! 

This photo is from last season.  It was the first year the Plumeria bloomed and it was a little skimpy.  I'm hoping for a big show this time and to hopefully get some good shots!
