You're not gonna believe this, but it's true!

After some shrub and tree maintenance, I went out to the backyard to do some rose and geranium care this afternoon. While applying some organic (i.e. safe but don't work as well as chemicals) insecticide and chipmunk repellent, I thought I heard a familiar chirping. I walked out into the yard and, sure enough, I saw my little sparrow buddy hopping around the place with its mom.

I was glad to see the little bird, but a little concerned that it was still on the ground. Then, I took another step closer and the little thing flapped its wings and took off to a low yew branch. It didn't fly higher then 3 feet and it didn't fly more than 10 yards while I watched, but we achieved LIFTOFF!

I think it's gonna be a good week.
