Morels! (by Kat)

This was a jam-packed weekend at our house. I built a few new birdhouses and put them up, though I'm a little bit concerned that their installation may be too late for this year's use.

Can I say I'm really early for next year?

I also put the hummingbird feeder up, and TA-DA!!!!

This might not seem amazing to many (or maybe even most) of you. To me, this was a thrill. I've put up hummingbird feeders every summer for 15 years.

Last year, one hummingbird came through the yard a few times over the course of two days.
That. Was. It.

But this year, I actually have two hummingbirds who've been sharing the feeder since Saturday. We're on day three here, folks, a wonderful new record!

Most importantly, this weekend brought us our first of many seasonal forays into the hills for morels. I love morels.

Any way you want to slice 'em...

or dice em'...

or throw them in a stew...
(or, er, homemade fettuccine noodles with leeks, garlic, and parm)

I love morels!

    This is my first year to put up a hummingbird feeder. I bought one while it was still winter and put it up empty. Then the other day a hummingbird came by looking for food. I was very sad that I disappointed him, and promptly went and filled it up. But I haven't seen a hummingbird since, and I hope he didn't go tell all his friends not to come here.
