Spring Beauty

I stole this pic of Spring Beauty ephemeral spring wildflowers from my mouse who texted it to me a while back. These are at the new mouse nest, one of the perks of the new place. The previous place was exotic in a lot of ways. This place is exotic in others.

Like ROOSTERS!!! For a short time a few years ago, we had a rooster in our neighborhood. I LOVED hearing it crow. Alas, people can keep hens in our city but not roosters. I’m sure there are some good reasons for this (?), I mean besides waking people up in the morning. Heck, in my neighborhood, at this time of year, there are birds galore and they make noise well before sun-up. Outside MY window, not three houses away. I love hearing bird and aminal noise of any sort and I have missed the rooster ever since another neighbor ratted on its owner.

Today I was kind of a slow-moving train wreck. The GG is heading north tomorrow and will open the moomincabin among other things. I can’t put into words my own civil war type struggle between the north (moominbeach) and south (Planet Ann Arbor). The problem is I love them BOTH. Now that I CAN telecommute from the moomincabin I have to figure out how long I want to stay there. I don’t want to miss shelling pea season at the farmers market for instance. Last summer I kept thinking I would go up there for various periods of time. Long weekends with a week or two weeks whenever. It turned out that I did some of that but I ended up staying there for SIX WEEKS at the end of the summer. That was not planned…

    That is a beautiful flower. I have to say that I’m not terribly fond of roosters. They are not the nice cheep cheeps of the birds I hear in the morning.
