Tired of pigeon invasions for over a decade, my parents covered our grilled windows further with a wired net. However, I was against it, so my window was spared. No pigeon maternity wards are cropping up, thankfully. But I miss the birds, especially the tiny sunbirds that flew in attracted by the flowers and the occasional bulbul or parrots on fed on the birdfeeder. Even the flowers suffered.
The elegant roses rebelled and stuck their stems out of the wiring. Now they bloom outside of our reach. The not-so-smart hibiscus is yet to catch up. Here’s how it struggles.
As I continue to rant my loss of freedom, do share what thoughts this picture brings to your mind!
