Spring brings with it many surprises and delights. But, never would I have imagined that I would enjoy such an unexpected sighting out through my office window; a chicken egg in an apple tree. Now, I know they don't grow on trees, and neither do chickens fly (or, leave the ground much more than a few feet). So, how did it get there. On closer inspection, I realized it was an empty shell, already cracked open some time ago. Aha! No chicken was involved in this careful placement of shell in tree. Apparently, a squirrel raided my compost pile and carried the prized possession far and high, leaving it where no one would have expected. Thank you, squirrel, for my spring surprise.
