I have a new neighbor.
Yes, some of the Bed and Breakfasts in Michigan are open for business!
Every year a house wren builds its nest in the birdhouse hanging outside Lizzie's window.
Actually, there are two wrens, working in partnership. I'm guessing it is her mate.
What is somewhat interesting (and a little disturbing) is that they worked hard on this for days.
And I haven't seen them since.
Lizzie is devastated. I am, too.
Rick has been baking.
He did a batch of eight baguettes earlier this week. And I have to say it's hard work but boy, does it pay off!
My neighbor's alium is finished now, but it was so good while it lasted!
These are my seeds. I'll have a post soon about how they are doing (they're much bigger now!)
And the strawberries are looking good. Shortcake, here we come in another couple of weeks!
My peonies have started to pop and since they are by the living room window, this is the view I see and it will be more to come! And of course it comes with a divine fragrance!
My neighbor on the other side sold her house and moved this week. She's been renting it out for the past five years so it shouldn't feel such a loss but it is. She let me pick some of her beautiful irises on her last day. They made a gorgeous bouquet, too!
The squirrels are always hungry...
...but this bunny felt quite content to just hang on the lawn for the longest time.
Life in our little world is good. Things are gently opening up here and the weather has been gorgeous. Books have been read, games played, meals cooked inside and out. Movies and videos have been greatly enjoyed.
Contentment is a wonderful word.
And right now, that's me. At least this week.
Next week? Who knows!
