Actually it is really peaceful here. There is always the sound of gunfire but that is because this is New Hampshire and these folks aren’t shooting at me. I was chatting with a neighbor who was walking her dog and she mentioned that she had seen white doves in my yard. Sure enough, I saw these guys on a lovely warm black-fly free Friday.
However I discovered that they are owned by my neighbor. I’ve heard the cooing but assumed it was morning doves. He lets them fly around a bit when he’s out in the yard. What beautiful birds.
