A certain well known radio presenter mentioned on his show this morning that the birds were busy 'at it' hence the reason they were chirping so loudly these days. The birds finished being 'at it' months ago- in fact, their time is early/late spring. The wild flowers too are finished- all the seeds are already deeply underfoot or being propelled by the winds far from their original home (or mostly getting up my nose). Our season for loving was very short and sweet this year. And when it's gone, it is gone. Always make the most of every second count.
