Skipping spring? With high in the mid 80's today it felt like summer and spring has not yet arrived. I was sitting out on the deck for a bit this afternoon listening to the birds singing when a dove flew in and perched on top of the pergola. Before long, its eyes began shutting, fighting open every now and then for a check about. Despite my being so close, it obviously felt safe and drifted to a light state of rest. Such a little sweetie.
