It’s springtime for the cacti too.
Apparently, this is the week we get spring flowers in Northern California.
I grew up watching the Muppets. For years I wandered through life, filled with the happy conviction that I knew everything I needed to know about Sam the Eagle. This happy state continued until I saw a video of the African shoebill stork on Twitter. It bore a disconcerting resemblance to old Sam. To make matters worse, while researching shoebills, I discovered that some think that the harpy eagle is actually the model for Sam the Eagle. There’s only one thing to do when your world has been rocked by this sort of question: compare and contrast.
I spotted a couple of women walking their donkeys on one of my walks this week. Could this be the most California thing ever?
My sunflowers looked basically done, so I decided to harvest 5 of the 7 flowers this morning. I may have been a bit hasty.
Happy 4th of July!
When I planted this sunflower I had no idea it would end up growing to be this tall.
Somebody’s been eating my lettuce and it wasn’t me. Whodunnit? It probably wasn’t the Lesser Goldfinch or the gopher, and if it was the rabbit, he didn’t act alone. Which brings us to the squirrel.
