i am eating popsicles and drinking mint sun tea. and reading about school gardens and composting and soil, as well as workers in the food system. it's going to be a long summer.
i am also trying to contain my excitement regarding the 2 baby birds in the nest in the bush in front of the house. soon, i'll get close enough for a photograph. but! i have named them.
mama bird = bonnie
baby birds = francesca and mabel
EDIT, may 27: after some research on the internets, i think francesca might really be frank.
EDIT, june 1: i found the third baby bird on monday and named her henrietta lou. but they all flew the nest by tuesday. this is where the story ends.
