Sunny and Warm today. Sigh.

This starling found a discarded apple in the grass. He stopped eating to regard me as I took his photo but resumed when I walked away. Click to enlarge. 

I'm on my way back outside to enjoy the day. In that spirit, a poem: 

I Meant to do My Work Today

By Richard LaGallienne

I meant to do my work today
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me. 
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro, 
And a rainbow held out its shining hand,
So what could I do but laugh and go?
