I have mentioned my outdoor shower several times on this blog. It is enjoyable to use all year long, but it is the best in spring, especially in the early morning. Several large cedars tower over the shower, creating a lattice-work of branches between the shower head and the open sky. Light filters down through the trees in the most calming manner. The songbirds are most active in the spring. Their chirping and singing echo through the early morning hours. Combined with the hiss of steamy water from the shower, the bird songs usher in a new day with the most pleasant of tunes.

    I love my windows open, early morning breaking through, the birds waking me up to their "free" concert of whistles, tweets, chirps. Thank you God.
