hum2 IMG_7206

green: fauna of the bayou. yes, i know, seeing a mama hummingbird feeding its baby was supposed to be once in a lifetime, but apparently someone goofed, because i just got to witness it twice in the same one. (different birds: this one has apparently fledged but is still getting help from mama; this one is in our backyard, while the others were from work.)

blue IMG_7282

blue: finding some creative alternative lighting options for the dragon house kitchen. since we don’t get real fireflies here, we’re having to mimic bioluminescence with artificial firefly jars: micro leds in an old blue jar above my sink.

    Frugivores unite!!!!! word!! love it, our door is always open to our fellow fruguaman. I love that you know the names of everything flora and fauna alike, I need some schooling from ya.

  • lesson one: get good at stringing together google search terms to find out what fauna you’re looking at… “yellow bird red head dark wing” in an image search took me to western tanager lickety split. i looked up cedar waxwings a few years ago when a zillion of them came and ate all the berries in the ash tree in the ols back yard in a matter of a few days. they made an impression on me. 🙂
