Our birdbath has been out for about a month now. If that ain't a sign of an early spring, I don't know what is. It looks like it needs to be balanced a bit, but that's gonna wait for another day. Birdbaths always remind me of 250 Main Street, Westbrook. My grandparents had one that sat in the middle of their backyard close to the trellis and white fence- (yes, I pulled a 'Tom Sawyer' one summer painting it). Summers it was surrounded by a ceramic mother duck and her three ducklings. As soon as the warm weather hit they 'found' their way out of the cellar and into this prime location. In their kitchen, if I crawled up next to the old sink looking out the windows, I could keep and eye on this scene all summer long. Quack! Quack!
