It’s the Ides of March, the anniversary of the death of Julius Caesar and also my birthday, although the latter occurred more than a few years after Julius’ death! Anyway, Joey asked me to mention my birthday here so that she could send me birthday wishes, so I heard (OK, read) and obeyed. Here you go, Joey!
“Atop” is today’s theme, like the candles atop a birthday cake, (which I’m not having, although I’ll probably have a dark beer tonight from those my husband gave me as a gift. Better than cake!) Outside my parents’ Arizona home is a tree beloved by this little hummingbird, atop the branches in this photo. He’s a colorful guy with a huge bill for dipping into flowers.
