I neglected to mention the exceptional batch of challot by E last week. Something about coming off Pesach drywall rations must be extra-inspirational!
Here are misc. flowers around the yard and house, representing annuals, perennials, native wildflowers, and leafy greens.
Once again I have no photo evidence of the ghostly possum who reappears at dawn strolling through our yard, but I’m happy to play host to such a beneficial, harmless critter feeling at home. The herd of stray cats doesn’t seem bothered, either.
I’m also happy to report the tiny twigs of paw paw and persimmon trees I transplanted from TN to OH are at last showing some signs of life. Soon the whole back yard will be lined with native trees and shrubs to welcome more local native birds and creatures.
