I’m in love with a woman.
I recently returned from a week of traveling that involved a lot of great time with my best friend.
I feel like I hardly get to see her now that we’re hours apart.
I met Jodi during our college years and love that lucky feeling I get knowing I know her.
We spent money on cocktails, building terrariums in The Green Room in Traverse City (thank you Megan Kellog), and lots of time wandering the acres of her new old farm home.
I took these pictures today in the yard after being gone for that wonderful week. A lots happens in a week or two.
A House Sparrow nest.
Legally I can destroy this nest, but they just rebuild. In the past when I've mentioned destroying their nest some one across the ocean messages me that I'm a cu^t for destroying the nest. I'm not destroying the nest this year and I expect a love note from my name-calling fan.
Four Eastern Bluebird eggs.
She must have started laying eggs as soon as I left last week. The bluebird nests are neatly made out of smooth dry grass. The House Sparrows use all parts of the grass, feathers, sticks and even bits of trash.
My favorite one-footed chickadee ate from my hand today. I was pretty relaxed this afternoon.
A Downy Woodpecker. The feeders are filled after a week of standing empty.
This pair of American Robins nested in the yard last year. The female is especially easy to differentiate from other robins because of her unusually light gray color.
The garden didn't slow its growth despite the cool week.
