that was weird. temperatures are up and down and up and ... found a september photo of a hare, also in cement series.
note: one side of ear is white, and the black tips stay all year. the rain lasted an hour, then winds, then snow, then a clear cold sunny day.
dragonflies. and that was a lynx! the squirrel visits at plantings. it enjoyed some half potatoes, quinoa is all gone.
a couple of what seemed to be brewer's blackbirds, very beautiful. they stayed for a while. squirrel: sunflowers are up, all over. elements: savory too.
skunks and a juvenile porcupine, deer and coyotes. and mushrooms!
this year's sunflower. shady: it probably won't even open. which led me to think that it was birds. (not squirrels.) at any rate, a long spindly surprise.
so, in the tree. last year: under an eave in a sunny spot. and what a great year for birds it's been. a massive snowy owl. a six foot wingspan in a winter slomo dream, a funky yellow warbler in yellow autumn leaves. the patch of cedar waxwings. an awesome crow, took its HUGE bread chunk ..to a roadside puddle. the big awkward owlets.
thinkin' about phenology wheels and plant families. garden hardiness zone 4a/3.
