Many of my colleagues here in the Home & Garden department joined me in enjoying the great view from my office window. There's a shade tree right outside, along with rows and rows of barberry bushes, making it a natural birdwatching spot. Once in awhile, a passing bird will catch my eye, and soon a crowd of people will form at my window.
Raeann, my designer counterpart who also happens to love photography, suggested that I share the view with you, too, so each month I'll post a few of her shots.
For those of you who don't live around here, April has been extraordinarily cool and wet, which I think has stunted the growth of many of our plants. Sadly, the migrating birds don't know a detour is in order. They certainly seemed surprised by our latest snowstorm: I think there were probably 20 robins huddled in the tree preparing to be buried by snow. It was funny, but I empathized too.
Here's hoping for sunnier, greener days in May!
