May Mosaic


May, as you can see, was predominantly about flowers.

A couple new colors of iris (ones I brought back with me from Mom's garden) bloomed this year -- the yellow and the rust. I'm thrilled that the Jack-in-the-Pulpit I got at the Clintonville Farmer's Market last summer is blooming!

The squirrels are using our garden gnome as a chew toy. He looks even worse now than he does in these pictures. Is this revenge for all the times in stories when gnomes ride on squirrels as if they were their ponies?

There were two amazing visitations this month. As I pulled up to park one Saturday in the early(ish) morning to work in the Land Lab, a Cooper's Hawk landed on the fence right in front of me. Same one I wrote about in Madness 2013? Perhaps!  And one night when AJ went to put some trash in our trashcan, he realized that the "leaf" on the handle wasn't a leaf at all -- it was a luna moth!

In this set you can also find a piece of pizza with a funny face, a sunset at Goodale Park and documentation of a first-try French Braid. (Next week I'm getting 4-6 inches cut off at my twice-yearly haircut.)

You can see this set up close and personal on Flickr. They've redesigned the site. It is quite lovely!
