Gratitude and Grief

Gratitude for two cool and sunny Spring days,for flowers blooming, for the voice of the Brown Thrasher newly arrived from the South...

Brown Thrasher photo by Steven Muskie:

Grief for the huge old Mock Orange bush that the grounds guys cut down sometime over the winter.
The Thrashers used to nest there. Where will they nest this year?

I swear -grounds guys just like to cut trees and bushes down. They promise to plant new ones in their place, but those new ones will take at least forty years to get that big. And  I will be dead in forty years. How's that for a selfish environmentalist?
