At 6:20 AM, my husband calls me to the window to see something exceedingly delightful (and seldom seen) by humans.
Two Pileated Woodpeckers perform a mating dance in my front yard. I’m not kidding. The male bows to the female, begins to hop a circle around her, and then flaps his wings around the trunk of a tree to show off his powerful wings.
Who knew they do that?
Then, my children discover enormous Queen Anne’s Lace in a field to put in colored water (we do it every summer) for bouquets of orange, green, and purple flowers.
Who knew Queen Anne’s Lace grew so big?
Then, I notice that the sunflower my daughter grew from seed in a big pot has changed positions. It’s following the sun and the sunflower hasn’t even bloomed. The whole plant knows to chase the sun, not just the flower.
We have many things to think about today. Exceedingly delightful things!
Did you observe something exceedingly delightful today?
