The wisteria began to bloom in late April and continued into May. Blossoms filled the tree and formed a lacy lavender canopy perfuming the air. Japanese lanterns hang in the shadows. Each evening we would sit outside with a glass of wine as evening fell. First the meadowlark would sing while the hummingbirds and bumblebees flitted from blossom to blossom. The bats and barnswallows fly through the air in their distinctive patterns, bats erratically chasing bugs.

The air grew cold but still we would wait. Finally, before the dark of full night, a great horned owl soared silently through the air close over our heads on his way to the river.
