For the Birds.

ages and ages ago, darin brought me a bird pepper (capsicum annuum var. glabriusculum). the poor thing has been mostly forgotten in a pot on the deck for the past two-and-a-half years, but has, nonetheless, survived, if not thrived.

but at least someone appreciates this woeful pepper plant. earlier this morning, as i was carrying the sprout around the yard (and trying to herd one of the cats back inside), a mockingbird flew down to dine on the ripe peppers! thanks to our unseasonably warm spring, there are many, many more peppers to ripen for the birds, so i'll keep my eyes open and maybe get a picture one day.
