The plum tree is in bloom.
Saw the first robin red breast yesterday. He just sat in the grass and posed for me. I said a few words but he didn't answer. (In case I haven't mentioned it before, birds like me, except for the blue jays who try to steal the nuts I leave out for the squirrels.) I went back inside and got a piece of bread, which I tore up and threw the chunks a few feet from him. He just watched, cocking his head. Then he flitted up to a branch on the drake elm and watched me some more. So I went back inside and when I came out again later the bread was still there. Those robins are cute but they could be stupid.
