Boulevard garden

Finally replaced the giant elm that the city removed last year. The ginkgo is looking good, and we’ve covered the huge dirt patch. Rabbits ate my dwarf dogwood so we had to add some fencing. I hope we’re done with it for a while!

Don’t complain about your taxes!

As I’ve been fortunate to be reasonably successful in life, I am looking more and more for ways to give back.  And not being a jerk about the most fundamental way to do that is, literally, the least anybody can do.

Finch egg

One of our zebra finches (Indie and Aussie) laid an egg! Both are female, so no future chicks, and we removed the egg from the feeding box as instructed by the Finch Forum Folk. Isn’t that egg adorable!

Lily wants us to get some fakes for the ladies to care for, and we might give that a try. The forum says it might cause the birds to fight.
