Love Note: Pigeons


These pigeons live in one of the gardens on the Anchorage Garden Tour. Next door are some exceptionally lovely chickens, but I was more fascinated by these pretties. What does one do with all of them? Enjoy their cooing? Teach them to carry messages? Do people eat pigeon eggs? And, how do they do in our winters?

I’ve always liked pigeons, despite having lived in Washington D.C. where more than one person referred to them as winged vermin. For some reason, I like knowing that pigeons live in Turnagain.

I love Anchorage. I love what it is, what it's been, and what I dream it will be. I share my adventures with DJ (my husband), my fabulous family and friends, two frenchies named Grover and Teddy, and now, all of you. If you love Anchorage too, get in touch - guest posts are welcome!
