Tiger and Tadpole

Little Red’s limbic system was fried. That whole mortar and pestle experience had just been beyond pail. She tried reading The brain of the tiger salamander, but then remembered that she had to visit her gran. She packed a basket with some fresh baguettes and some fine, odorous well-water. It brought back some vivid memories.

Meanwhile, at the Dino Diner, the chipmunk is hopping mad because it cannot reach the seeds.

Croc con Crown

Cartoon of a crocodile and goat chromosplice

Crocoat or gocro?

The croc con crown doesn’t get down. Maybe it’s related to the old horned one?

Speaking of down: ‘saw the Canadian Museum of Nature’s new (Canada Goose) Arctic Gallery last night! Here are a few shots:

Blocks of melting ice: global warming is real. Everyone wanted to touch the ice- a wake-up call at the start of the exhibit. The world’s refrigerator has warm human handprints all over it.

 I loved the black and white artwork on the walls.

Open access for cats still a problem cartoon with cats and bird feeder

The cats are complaining about the lack of open access. I, for one, love my new twitter feed.

Early Birds

Some bad shots of the blue jays, cardinals and sparrows at the newly half-filled feeder. I nearly fell off the ladder trying to fill it. Luckily the eave was nearby, so I didn’t drop.

 I did overfill the plunge pool whilst binge-watching The Bridge though- after all that exertion. First the filter was burping air for lack of water, and now it was spouting and splashing gaily into the daffodil bed. Which brought out the carpenter ants in droves. Did the blue jays thank me for the almost-eavesdropping? No.

Thank goodness it has stopped raining: the water was making its way to the door. The sunlight off the pool’s shimmering surface is so pretty. Sundays should come with hazard pay.

Bridge Binge

Cartoon: Scandinavian furniture improves the watching of crime series.

Weekend entertainment: The Bridge.

Meanwhile, we are experiencing an infestation of inchworms. As if the borer beetles, carpenter ants and carpenter bee larvae weren’t enough. We will wake up one day to our habitat reduced to piles of dust; the age of the insect upon us. Hah! Maybe I had those sins and virtues of the Celestial Sandwich Septych the wrong way around…no rest for the wicked. Oh, I, inchworm!
