234/366 First BBQ of the season

The Birds of Paradise being held in our conservatory over winter are blooming like nobody’s business. This is one of about five that are breaking out. They really do look quite lovely.

We had our first BBQ today. With the easing of the lockdown, it meant that we were able to see some members of our family face to face (even if six feet away) for the first time in several months (several = four in this case) how ridiculous to be “forcibly” separated for a third of the year. On the other hand, I entirely understand and agree with the reasoning behind the enforced separation. We haven’t encountered anything like this for the best part of a century. In many ways it is a different world now to how it was then. I was just pleased to be able to see them.

Having not been used for quite a while, the BBQ needed a good clean. That went well. The food was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

The birds were pretty annoyed. They were very reluctant to approach the bird table whilst we were out in the garden for most of the afternoon. I have a camera set up so that I can watch the bird table from my desk. What I can see is that the mountain of food that was there has now gone. I guess as soon as the guests went home, and we went in, the birds descended en-masse.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
