This ligustrum bush stands guard by my front door and each spring it bursts forth with magnificent vanilla colored blossoms that only last for a couple of weeks. The variety of birds and insects that visit it each day is astounding. When my youngest son was still living at home, he and I would sit on the deck each evening, and exactly at 8:30 pm, the catbird would arrive to pluck the little white moths from between the leathery leaves.
This painting depicts one day of visitors.
