On Friday mornings, right after drop-off at school, my friend Jo (she's the one who gave me the ornamental oregano) and I walk her dog. It's a beautiful 3-mile-walk around a calm lake during which we often see lots of birds. Beside the geese and mallards we saw today, we also discovered a juvenile green heron
and a juvenile snipe
I love watching birds, and finding these two special ones really made my morning!
