• The bird nest in the right edge of our honeysuckle vine a couple of months ago did not do well. We noticed itty-bitty smashed eggs on the ground beneath it over the course of several days. No one seems to live there anymore. So sad.
  • The bird nest in the left edge of the honeysuckle vine, on the other hand, seems to be thriving. If I pull up a step stool and stand on my toes when moma bird isn't there, I see little bitty fuzzy things moving inside. Can't see them well, but they seem cute. Moma bird doesn't seem too perturbed by my coming and going.
  • The zucchini is in blossom! This is the first time in my life that I've ever grown zucchini, and so probably the last time in my life that I'll ever be excited about it, but there you go.
  • Did you know that the singular of zucchini is zucchino? This is one of my favorite useless language tidbits. Useless, because when is zucchini ever not plural?
  • We have four zucchini plants. They came in a single package. One is a significantly darker shade of green than the other three. I have no idea why.
  • If you pick up fruit in the morning and leave it in a bucket on the kitchen counter without washing it and putting it away while you walk downtown to the library and back, the ants will find it before lunch. (True, this is the sort of thing that one might be expected to anticipate without having to learn by observation. But since I did observe it, I thought I'd go ahead and mention it.)
