disturbance of blackbirds

i have some fiber news
but the neighborhood has other things pressing:
 after supper walk with wendy
 we were dive-bombed by
some red winged blackbirds
 already disturbed by some mowing that  
my neighbor started.
they had a lot to get off their chests.
and quite possibly had some murder on their minds.
 a closer look at the shrine
and i'm still puzzled by the fake fruit
(and mistletoe?)
 and the fence just above it
 seems to me to be so haphazard
any disturbance could 
destroy
 but it doesn't
a couple of calves, 
however,
could have a negative affect.
they are safely held in by wire and their mamas
about a mile away.
and, this week,
my friend (not bo peep, but katrina) who lost her sheep, 
found it. 
4 1/2 miles away.

Fascinated by the shrine....fake fruit?

Velma said...

claudia, perfect weather followed by perfect night followed by another perfect day. YAY.

penny, they are some kind of fancy plastic and the mistletoe cracks me up! incongruous in every way. delightful.
