Life continues to be a bit busy here. I suspect the next few weeks will be busier still. Feeling a little overwhelmed I forced myself down off the painting ladder and outside for a few minutes this morning. I was glad to see the Sphinx moths returning. (you may notice that I have a little bit of fingernail showing and no band-aids, proof positive that I have not been needling wool or working wood)
Another pair of robins has made a nest in the wall of my kids' not-quite-completed fort. And I thought the potted plant was a bad location! This is about a foot off the ground and I'm truly shocked they've survived this long. Let's all wish them luck in fending off foxes and small children. We also have a tiny nest with tiny blue eggs in a shrub by our door with a little momma Chipping Sparrow in it. Daredevils, these birds.
My nasturtiums are starting to come up and I can't wait to eat them.
My peony and lilacs are starting to bloom and I really can't wait to smell them.
As I was kneeling down to take a photo I was attacked by a 4-legged beast...
Oh sure he looks harmless but he's the master of the sneak attack. And the shoe-chew.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. See you soon.
