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.
