We all love basking this time of year!


ED saved this little wren from the maws of Loverboy (aka Mr. Gorgeous, The Black Panther, or Stupidhead). It seems to have had a deformed leg, which would explain why Loverboy (aka Mr. Ineffectual) was able to catch it. It had no noticeable wounds and took right off when ED released it. Such a tiny little bird!

It has been deliciously cool all week, especially in the mornings—so cool, in fact that we’ve had a (very small) fire a couple of times already. And no, we haven’t closed any windows, which makes it just a tiny bit less embarrassing.


Pumpkin is so delighted whenever ED shears, especially if ED forgets to put her wool inside!
