The View From My Office Window

My office is in the basement but it has daylight windows, and right outside the southwest-facing window (which I can see perfectly as I work on my computer) is a lilac bush, which is at times covered with birds. On this page, I will share with you the view that I am privileged to see from my office window.

House wrens have set up a nest near my window. The parents like to
hang out in the lilac bush. Can't wait to see the babies!

It's been a long time, but I am finally back in my home office working
during the days, and my view right now is deep, but the
chickadees seem to be enjoying it.
