Dear Readers, you may notice the dates of the Blog do not match the Flash Post dates which are in real time. The blog was written in 2009 and saw the light of day 6 months back when my younger daughter discovered it and decided to bring it to you here.

Button, this is a picture I clicked in our terrace garden.

What? You mean to say there is a birdnest with baby birds in it?

Come with me. I’ll show you what I have been keeping watch over since the last 4 days. It’s not that the parents aren’t watching over their babies but I, too, want to make sure that the crows don’t get to them before the birds take flight to join their ilk.

I heard the mother bird attacked you when you were nosing around on the first day?

Oh yes. She flew at me and grazed past my face. Just then, I heard faint chirping sounds and, on exploring a little, found this nest with 3 pink funnel-like objects reaching upwards as if they were begging for something to be put into those funnels. On moving closer, I realised they were tiny hatchlings that must have emerged from their eggs not so long back and were, at that point of time, being fed by one of their parents. They must have felt that, since I was rather close to the nest, I would hurt their babies. Therefore, the attack.

That bond between mother and child is amazing.

Now you know why I often call our terrace garden “My Garden of Eden?”

I do. I also spotted one or two butterflies fluttering around this morning.

Here’s a question for you, Button–“Who first inhabited The Garden of Eden?”

Adam and Eve. How’s that!

Or so goes the tale. I’m impressed.
