So it doesn't have a lot to do with tea, but as I was sitting, enjoying my Umegashima sencha this morning and appreciating its verdant, made-for-spring taste, I kept hearing something.
Something squawking urgently. Over and over.
And it is spring, after all, so behold: the baby starling on my back porch. I can honestly say I've never seen anything cuter in my entire life. If only I could somehow keep him calm enough to sit in a little tiny teacup and let me immortalize him digitally.
I'd have to win some sort of blog award then. And I would use all the prize money for birdseed and tea.
