Bird nest #1

Bird nest 1
Another series begins.  Finding lots of bird nests around.  This one was in the forsythia door wreath.  The babies had fledged and flown away. The wreath came down, so the screen door from Home Depot could be assembled and installed.  My son and his wife are of the lego generation, so these kind of projects do not intimidate them.  They are also IKEA freaks!

Allium 1

Alium 1
OK, Mary Avalon.  I like your idea of a series.  Here’s the first in my allium series.  Allium is a genus of monocotyledonous flowering plants that includes hundreds of species, including the cultivated onion, garlic, scallion, shallot, leek, and chives.The generic name Allium is the Latin word for garlic, and the type species for the genus is Allium sativum which means “cultivated garlic”. wikipedia

Riding with City Commissioners

Riding with Commissioners
In an attempt to promote bicycle culture in town, this young man from the library was trying to find the commissioners.  They had planned to ride around town.  I helped him find his way to city hall.  I thought he was the ice cream man.  No ice cream in that lovely red box.  Just swag to promote bicycle culture.
