Public Image Ltd – No Birds (1979) – Audio Only

This could be heaven
Shallow spreads of ordered lawns
I like the illusion, illusion of privacy
The careful trees blending so perfectly
Bland planned idle luxury
Life in lovely allotted slots
A token nice, a nice constitution
A layered mass of subtle props
— John Lydon

I like my little patch of suburbia.

I have a bird bath outside the window at my desk and it’s fun to watch the birds throughout the day. With the summer heat though the bees started taking it over and the birds were going through hell. I ended up making a “bee bath” right next to it to lure the bees away. Had to empty the bird bath to get the bees to switch and get the new bath established as I gradually moved it farther and farther away. With no water in the bird bath, all the birds left.

It was a no win, the birds couldn’t use it with all the bees swarming so it pretty much had to be done.

After about a week I’ve started the bird bath back up. It will get busy again but it’s slow right now and I think some of my regulars have moved to other spots. After a bit there will be new ones to come and take their place, and so it goes.
